Based on close to two hundred interviews with decision-makers, government officials, and industry stakeholders, Karoline Steinbacher presents the first in-depth enquiry into Germany’s efforts of “exporting” its sustainable energy policies. The book closes the empirical gap in understanding how Germany’s leadership influences the transfer of renewable energy policy to three heterogeneous cases, namely Morocco, South Africa, and California.
- The German Energiewende and its International Dimension
- Promoting Renewable Energy Policy in Morocco: Germany’s Leadership Role
- Mediated Transfer of Sustainable Energy Policies in South Africa
- Harnessing Energiewende Ideas in the Political Debate: Transfer to California
- Policy Lessons for Effective Leadership by Transfer
- Academics, researchers, and students in the fields of political sciences, energy policy, international relations, political economy, development studies
- Experts and decision makers in the fields of energy policy, (renewable) energy industry, foreign relations, and development cooperation
Dr. Karoline Steinbacher is a managing consultant in energy policies at a leading consultancy in the field of renewable energy in Berlin, Germany.
