Zusammenfassung

This material about Sustainable Energy Production" helps you to explore how global patterns of energy production from fossil fuels hamper development and contribute to existential threats especially for Small Island Development States (SIDS). You will learn which role renewable energy generation and improved energy supply technologies can play in creating sustainable development pathways and you will be able to distinguish different alternative energy sources and understand the strengths and weaknesses associated with them. Dr. Dinesh Surroop and Dr. Anirudh Singh portray their island’s energy regimes in terms of current energy production, related socio-economic challenge and describe how Fiji and Mauritius have benefited from the introduction of renewable energy. They talk about the potential of various type renewables in their islands but also existing barriers and constraints and illustrate by means of some concrete examples how climate variability and climate change are impacting their islands already today. Dr. Dinesh Surroop, University of Mauritius, and Dr. Anirudh Singh, University of the South Pacific explain the adaptation and mitigation potential of renewable energies and the importance of environmentally sound socio-economic development in SIDS. You also get some further background information and trade-offs of conventional energy production.
