Energy Efficiency and the Environment: Forging the Link, E. Vine, D.
Crawley, P. Centollela, Eds., 418 pp., 1991, $28. Contains 20 papers by leading
researchers, program analysts and policy makers focusing on how planners can
incorporate environmental externalities in natural resource allocation. Based on
papers presented at a 1990 summer workshop on energy efficiency in buildings.
State of the Art Energy Efficiency: Future Directions, E. Vine, D.
Crawley, Eds., 287 pp., 1991, $26. Contains more papers from the same workshop
as the previous entry, covering energy efficiency technologies and programs,
resource planning and policy making, and data collection and analysis

164 pp., 1991, $24.50. Prepared at ACEEE in cooperation with Electrobras
(Brazil's national electric utility) and the University of Brazil, this report
describes the country's progress in electricity conservation, the potential for
further improvements, how implementation of electricity conservation measures
can be accelerated, and how those in the U.S. and elsewhere can help Brazil.
Reviewed by M. Stetson in World Watch, p. 40, Mar.-Apr. 1992.
Energy-Efficient Motor Systems: A Handbook on Technology, Program and
Policy Opportunities, S. Nadel, M. Shepherd et al., 379 pp., 1991, $27. An
interdisciplinary team of experts evaluates the existing motor stock, outlines
specific approaches for increasing efficiency, reviews experience to date and
Energy Use and the Environment, F.P.W. Winteringham, 150 pp.,
