This book was hailed by Christopher Flavin, president of the Worldwatch Institute, as "a clear road map to the proven policies that will make a post-petroleum economy possible.�

Arthur Rosenfeld, commissioner, California Energy Commission, and former director of the Center for Building Science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory called it: �the most comprehensive, detailed, and insightful guide to understanding a critical global challenge: how energy efficiency and renewable energy can replace fossil fuels. Energy Revolution is full of 21st-century ideas that anyone serious about energy policy will have to read.�
