About this book

Introduction


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.

  • 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

Target Groups
  • 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
