Energy security and climate change mitigation: The interaction in long-term global scenarios

Understanding the relationship between energy security and climate mitigation is critical for linking long-term global challenges with immediate national energy priorities.
This thesis examines energy security implications of climate mitigation policies. Using some 70 scenarios from six global Integrated Assessment Models, it shows how pursuing climate policies would affect the geopolitical balance, scarcity of resources, and diversity of energy options in the 21st century.
