'...Mitchell...knows how to clearly set out complicated issues. Her arguments are well thought out, passionate and exciting...The publication of her book is very timely...' - Power UK (Platts)

'...Mitchell has done an excellent job of distilling the torrent of Government pronouncements and an immense amount of research into a meaningful and manageable volume. More than that, she has made sense of the tensions between short and long term decisions which Governments face.' - Colin Axon, Energy Group Newsletter

'The book is gutsy, wielding valid and hard-hitting criticisms of the government. It's empirical richness and applied knowledge is thoroughly grounded and conceptualised within the current academic debate on energy policy, thus making the book relevant to a wide audience inerested in sustainable energy and policy making more broadly.' - Sally Murral, University of Plymouth
