Prospects for Biomass, Wind and Solar Energy, With and Without Storage: Alberta Case Study
Presentation by Presentation by Dr. G. Cornelis van Kooten on the Prospects for Biomass, Wind and Solar Energy, With and Without Storage: Alberta Case Study at the GWPF on May 24, 2018.
Professor van Kooten has more than thirty years of experience in natural resource economics, including agricultural and forest economics, land-use management, mathematical programming, and, most recently, the economics of renewable energy and climate. His interests range from agricultural and forest economics to development economics and computational economics. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed journal articles and 45 book chapters; he is the author of two books on climate economics, author or co-author of three books on land and forest economics, and co-editor of three books. His book with Erwin H. Bulte entitled The Economics of Nature (Blackwell, 2000) is considered a classic reference book for researchers in the field of wildlife and public land economics, and his 1995 paper in the American Journal of Agricultural Economics on the uptake of carbon in forest ecosystems is the standard reference for work in the field of terrestrial carbon offsets. He is also the author of Climate Change, Climate Science and Economics (Springer 2013).
