The book EU Climate Policy, written by FNI researcher Jørgen Wettestad and Elin Lerum Boasson at the University of Oslo, has sold well and is now available in paperback.
The paperback version was issued on 20 March 2017, following some 18 months of ‘very good sales’, according to editorial assistant at Routledge, Claire Maloney.
'Although a lot has happened in EU climate policy since we finished work on that book I think the mechanisms launched and discussed in that book have enduring relevance and should be checked out,’ says FNI research professor Jørgen Wettestad.
Four core policies
The book deals with four central climate policies within the EU: emissions trading, renewables, carbon capture and storage, and energy policy for buildings. It examines central similarities and differences in how these policies have taken shape, and gives specific attention to the role of industry, policy interaction, and the EU-external environment.
