Item #d93nov86

Energy for Tomorrow's World: The Realities, the Real Options and the Agenda for Achievement, 320 pp., Oct. 1993., $60 USEA members/$80 nonmembers. USEA or WEC.

Results of a four-year, $5 million study by the World Energy Council with contributions from over 500 energy and environmental experts in 100 nations. Driven by population increases and improved living conditions, global energy demands will rise by 2020 to 130-200% of 1990 consumption, mostly in developing countries, despite enormous efforts at energy conservation. Consensus recommendations made are supported by developing and industrialized nations, environmentalists and energy producers. Consists of a global assessment plus nine regional reports. (See next entry; contact WEC for other regions).

Item #d93nov87

WEC Commission North American Regional Report, 103 pp., Oct. 1993, $10 USEA members/$15 nonmembers. USEA or WEC.

This adjunct to the previous listing finds that both Canada and the U.S. recognize that energy intensity in North America is high, because of lifestyles, physical conditions and the large export of energy-intensive commodities. Within these limits, however, strong efforts are being made to increase energy conservation and efficiency. Contains other observations relating to energy policy and use.

Item #d93nov88

Energy 1993 Report, May 1993. USEA.

Contains 13 recommendations aimed mainly at increasing U.S. energy production; improved energy efficiency in government operations should also be a priority.

Item #d93nov89

The Architecture of the Energy System and Energy RD&D: A Look at the Building as Well as the Bricks, 44 pp., Feb. 1993, no charge. USEA.

A U.S.-Canadian council studied long-term future energy requirements, particularly in view of climate change concerns, concluding that a new approach termed AWES (Architecture of the Whole Energy System) is required to plan and prioritize energy research, development and demonstration (RDD).
