Danny Harvey is a Professor in the Department of Geography, University of Toronto, where he teaches courses related to climate, global warming and energy use. His recent work has focused on scenarios that make the transition to a fossil-fuel free energy system sufficiently rapidly that there is still a chance of meeting the Paris target of limiting global mean warming to no more than 2?C above pre-industrial. Among his books are (1) A Handbook on Low-Energy Buildings and District Energy Systems: Fundamentals, Techniques, and Examples published in 2006 and (2) Energy and the New Reality, Volume 1: Energy Efficiency and the Demand for Energy Services and Volume 2: C-Free Energy Supply, published in 2010.
