... this paper, we argue that the key to understanding India's growth in RETs in recent years is in fact a story of regional variation. Figure 6 shows that installed solar power capacity is largely concentrated in the northwest of the Indian sub-continent, particularly in the three states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh, which are home to 60 per cent of the country's solar capacity. In contrast, particularly in the north-eastern states, however, solar power is rare. ...

This article explores empirically how different types of labor market inequality affect policy preferences in post-industrial societies. I argue that the two main conceptualizations of labor market vulnerability identified in the insider–outsider literature are complementary: labor market risks are shaped by both labor market status—whether an indi...

... In the energy sector, its application aids in the understanding of the complexity surrounding clean energy transitional issues -justice, injustice, losers, and winners (Newell and Mulvaney 2013;Baker, Newell and Phillips 2014;Power et al. 2016). According to Isoaho, Goritz and Schulz (2016), the recent application of PEA in energy-related issues such as RE development is due to the fact that socio-technical literature failed to address adequately the complexity and dynamics of clean energy development. A PEA should therefore identify all forms of: ...

The Green New Deal (GND) has emerged on the national stage as a plan to address climate change by reforming the energy system. It would be hugely expensive, and likely involve the redistribution of accumulated wealth from the bourgeoisie, and controls on carbon-intensive fractions of capital. The GND would also threaten the bourgeoisie by democratizing the means of the production in the energy sector, and possibly inspiring a wider referendum on capitalism itself. Anticipating attacks on the GND by capital, I propose that workers’ needs be placed at its center. I make this case by explaining how capital exerts power over the state, how labor can fight capital using strikes, and how the proletariat could force the bourgeoisie to submit to a state-led GND. Along the way I make the case for broadening the scholarship that focuses on energy's importance to the state by explaining energy's importance as a vital means of production and not mainly as a source of rent.
