The European Union Sustainable Development Strategy (EU SDS), initially proposed by the European Council in Gothenburg in 2001 and renewed in June 2006, aims at the continuous improvement of the quality of life for current and future generations. The strategy focuses on issues such as climate change, social equity and cohesion, public health and poverty. Within this framework, global climate stability is necessary to achieve further progress towards long-term sustainable development and renewable energy is expected to play an important role in constituting a global sustainable energy structure. This book analyzes the role of renewable energies in the European Union Sustainable Development Strategy, studying their evolution and shift-share components. (Imprint: Novinka)
