Recommended reading in energy features the books and articles I have found most useful in my own research into energy – broadly defined to include production, consumption, transportation, technology, trading, risk management, economic history and economic geography. The bibliography started out as an aide memoire and in response to requests for recommendations on particular topics. I update the list quarterly. It has since grown very large so I have created a contents page with internal links to each section. The selection is inevitably personal. But the main criteria are that I have actually read the work, found the information and analysis useful and insightful in some way, and that it is (usually) well-written. I hope you find it useful.
