This chapter maps and assesses the global climate change institutions and policies that relate to energy. First, we introduce the links between climate change governance and energy and discuss some current trends in energy use and their implications for climate change policy. Subsequently, we introduce the global climate governance architecture, including international and transnational arenas and institutions before we analyze each setting in more detail. The next section discusses the energy-related interlinkages between climate change and other issue areas, while the final section suggests options for managing interlinkages and provides an outlook on future research challenges.
