Energy Insecurity Challenges to Future Energy Stability

In this section of the book authors present various analyses on the challenges facing the international community in meeting future energy demands by highlighting the potential security-related problems that may arise from technological choices, energy uses and, in some cases, land-use choices. The section will aim to contextualize the problems related to both traditional and new energy resources by highlighting areas where conflicts, either localized or global, may arise in the future. This includes a focus on security issues related to the oil and gas, nuclear, biofuels and hydropower sectors, highlighting areas that may cause potential threats to international peace and security, as well as to development. This is not all the challenges we are facing; the section tries also to look at energy access for all and the meeting of the Millennium Development Goals, addressing sustainable consumption and production in the rapidly industrializing development countries, as well as the challenge of moving away from present consumption patterns in industrialized countries to rapidly sustainable consumption patterns.
