Review

"Deeply researched ... hopeful." -- Bill McKibben, "New York Review of Books"

"Deeply researched ... hopeful."

"

"Deeply researched ... hopeful."-- Bill McKibben, "New York Review of Books"

"Every American who pays or knows someone who pays an electric bill should read "Solar Revolution.""-- Cecil Johnson, ""Business Bookshelf, " Fort Worth Star-Telegram"

"While the book is a bit technical, even a solar-novice can learn plenty about the past and present of solar energy, and what may be in store for the future."-- ""E-The Environmental Magazine""

"This book is a rigorous but intensely practical analysis of how the world's energy future should evolve. It will be valuable not only for scholars dealing with the technological and policy aspects of energy, but also for the concerned citizen who may have no specialized knowledge of the issues. "Solar Revolution" should receive worldwide attention for exploring the pathways that can guide the world towards a renewable energy future."--R. K. Pachauri, Director-General, The Energy and Resources Institute, New Delhi, and Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

"Everyone who wants to understand the permanent energy answer that can reverse climate change, eliminate oil shocks, and avoid future Chernobyls should read this book. Bradford builds a compelling business case that solar energy is the most disruptive technology in history."--Denis Hayes, Former Director, U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory

"This is a timely and much-needed book. The solar industry is evolving with dramatic speed, both technologically and economically. With a business perspective and a wealth of knowledge about the solar industry and the wider energy economy, Travis Bradford provides an excellent account of solar energy today."--Dan Kammen, Professor and Founding Director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley

""Solar Revolution" makes a powerful case for a disruptive shift in the energy marketplace--ushering in a post-fossil-fuel age. Where others despair in the face of 'peak oil' and out-of-control climate change, Travis Bradford sees a unique opportunity to create a clean new energy economy."--Christopher Flavin, President, Worldwatch Institute

""Solar Revolution" is an essential read because it analyzes the transformation of the global energy economy. The market will drive the new energy economy, and solar is already a growing and influential player. This is a positive vision of a sensible, practical, sustainable energy future."--Bill Richardson, Governor of New Mexico and former U.S. Secretary of Energy

"This book challenges the energy debate: it shows in a convincing way that atomic and fossil energies are dispensable and could be replaced totally by renewables within some decades."--Hermann Scheer, General Chairman, World Council for Renewable Energy, and member of the German Parliament
