The  global energy scenario is undergoing an unprecedented transition. In  the wake of enormous challenges―such as increased population, higher  energy demands, increasing greenhouse gas emissions, depleting fossil  fuel reserves, volatile energy prices, geopolitical concerns, and energy  insecurity issues―the energy sector is experiencing a transition in  terms of energy resources and their utilization. This modern transition  is historically more dynamic and multidimensional compared to the past  considering the vast technological advancements, socioeconomic  implications and political responses, and ever-evolving global policies  and regulations. Energy insecurity in terms of its critical  dimensions―access, affordability, and reliability―remains a major  problem hindering the socioeconomic progress in developing countries.

The Handbook of Energy Transitions presents  a holistic account of the 21st-century energy transition away from  fossil fuels. It provides an overview of the unfolding transition in  terms of overall dimensions, drivers, trends, barriers, policies, and  geopolitics, and then discusses transition in terms of particular  resources or technologies, such as renewable energy systems, solar  energy, hydropower, hydrogen and fuel cells, electric vehicles, energy  storage systems, batteries, digitalization, smart grids, blockchain, and  machine learning. It also discusses the present energy transition in  terms of broader policy and developmental perspectives. Further, it  examines sustainable development, the economics of energy and green  growth, and the role of various technologies and initiatives like  renewables, nuclear power, and electrification in promoting energy  security and energy transition worldwide.
