Global Energy Assessment
The Global Energy Assessment is now available for free online. This is a major international assessment of the prospects for energy transition launched in 2012. Chapter 1 "Energy Primer" is particularly useful, providing an introduction to energy systems. I am using it as a reading in my energy economics course that is starting this week (2nd year I am teaching it). It updates the 1996 energy primer that was included in the 2nd IPCC Assessment Report that I used as a teaching resource up till now.
