Chapters 14 looks in greater depth at the energy aspects of the transition to a green economy. First, various energy transition models are discussed: the U.S. energy revolution driven by the large-scale exploitation of oil and gas shale is a very different option than the low-carbon strategy adopted by Europe or the long-term diversification aimed at by oil-producing countries and the major emerging economies.
