— “A Just Transition: Making Energy Poverty History with an Energy Mix” continues to impact worldwide readers and extend the reach for its message of global change —
JOHANNESBURG, June 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — NJ Ayuk, an internationally recognized lawyer and thought leader, today announced that his latest book, “A Just Transition: Making Energy Poverty History with an Energy Mix,” has been named to the top of the Wall Street Journal bestseller list. The economic and ecological commentary had already risen in the charts as part of its debut on Amazon earlier this year. The book continues to engage readers regarding the critical topic of energy poverty and the need to take action now in order to avoid future crisis, sparking conversation and debate on a global scale.
“A Just Transition: Making Energy Poverty History with an Energy Mix” explores how the interconnectedness of the world economy and infrastructures have come to increase demand for change that not nations are equipped to manage. NJ Ayuk points to the green energy policies put forth by the International Energy Agency and how these have caused damage to energy economies throughout Africa that rely heavily on the export of natural resources. While embracing green energy sources and practices have implicit value, Ayuk posits that world leaders need to consider the economic toll that rolling back energy projects can have on reliant economies in developing countries.
NJ Ayuk has tackled the issue of sustainability and economic impact throughout his career. As CEO of the Centurian Law Group and Executive Chairman of the African Energy Chamber, Ayuk has witnessed firsthand the effects of the fast-evolving energy industry on laggard economies across Africa. His latest book is an attempt to highlight the disparities caused by the changes taking place in the energy industry, which focus on key innovation tactics without considering the impact to existing infrastructures. “A Just Transition” calls for conversation around practical ways to help address energy poverty, the lack of sustainable energy products and services, throughout African countries that export the majority of their natural resources in this industry.
Ayuk’s stance is not one resistant to change but rather one that calls for world leaders and innovators to look at the broader impact of their decisions. He also looks to the global stage for solutions that can help Africa embrace new technologies and sustainable practices in ways that support economic growth. “”By using every energy resource at our disposal, increasing investment across the entire African energy value chain, and prioritizing local content and capacity building, together, we can build a future where everyone has access to reliable and sustainable energy,” said Ayuk.
