This variability is examined under three section headings: Part 1, Sustainable Energy Challenges and Policies- Part 2, Innovation Challenges in Different Economic Contexts- and Part 3, The Adoption of Energy Solutions by Different Technology and Organization Sectors. Part 1 examines the challenges of increasing sustainable energy production. Part 2 presents challenges to innovation in different economic systems. Part 3 surveys the range of industry sectors that are adopting environmentally friendly solutions.
