This book is the first analysis of the development of the emission trading scheme and the 2008 energy and climate package by the European Commission. The author offers a deep insight into the genesis of the Commission's proposal for the emission trading scheme, its revision and the new proposal for a renewable energy directive. He traces the development of the world's first comprehensive energy and climate legislation within the Commission services and the negotiations between commissioners and their cabinets. Focusing on the role of politics and science within the Commission this study tackles the following questions: what are the Commission strategies in using knowledge? Does the Commission actually learn or does it simply engage in power plays when confronted with knowledge? According to the author, the Commission is built on a paradox and functions as catalyst transforming knowledge into politics.
