"Rooted in public policy theory, and employing a mixed-methods approach that includes advanced economic analysis and qualitative research, [the author] explores the policy tools that address the politics and economics of clean energy development and deployment across all 50 states. Deitchman includes in his analysis international case studies of this policy context in Canada, Germany, and Australia to reveal different state-level policy tools, the politics behind the tools, and the economic implications of alternative approaches."-- Back cover.
