Energy economics as an energy justice dilemma: Case studies of normative trade-offs in Malawi, Mexico and Germany

Abstract

Energy transitions are an economic and equity concern, but this can be forgotten or misunderstood. With this in mind, this chapter has two aims. First, it seeks to introduce concepts of energy justice to a potentially new audience – those interested in energy economics. Second, it introduces the complexity of this challenge through three empirical case studies, each of which focuses on a different tenet of energy justice, and therefore, a theoretically discrete but practically interlinking set of demands. Specifically, we present real-world energy dilemmas that illustrate the challenge of economic and ethical thinking in Malawi, Mexico, and Germany.
