PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS... ENERGY: POLICY


Item #d94jun44

Correspondence on the debate between Brookes and Grubb concerning the relationship between energy efficiency and energy consumption, Energy Policy, 22(3), 257, Mar. 1994.


Item #d94jun45

Two items from ibid., 22(2), Feb. 1994:

"Combined Heat and Power [CHP]: Positive Progress in the UK," M. Brown (Combined Heat & Power Assoc., 35 Grosvenor Gardens, London SW1W 0BS, UK), 173-178. Privatization of electric supply gave new companies opportunities to develop the market for CHP, but also introduced regulatory barriers. One recent development is the Energy Saving Trust.

"The Development of Combined Heat and Power in the UK," K. Harvey (NORWEB, Talbot Rd., Manchester M16 0HQ, UK), 179-181. Privatization has stimulated CHP applications; installed capacity will at least double by the year 2000.


Item #d94jun46

"On the Use of 'Adders' by Public Utility Commissions," J. Tschirhart (Dept. Econ. & Finance, Univ. Wyoming, Laramie WY 82071), The Energy J., 15(1), 121-128, Jan. 1994.

In the evaluation of alternative utility technologies, dirtier technologies are handicapped relative to cleaner ones by the use of adders, which are intended to measure environmental damages. However, damage costs are not included in electricity rates.


Item #d94jun47

"Energy-Efficiency Research, Development and Demonstration [RD&D]: New Roles for U.S. States," J.P. Harris (Energy Anal. Prog., Lawrence Berkeley Lab., 1250 Maryland Ave. SW, S. 150, Washington DC 20024), C. Blumstein et al., Energy Policy, 21(12), 1205-1216, Dec. 1993.

Most of the eight states that have RD&D programs emphasize applied research on end-use efficiency and renewable energy. When indexed per capita or per energy dollar, the average rate of state RD&D spending on conservation and renewables is about 65-75% that of the U.S. DOE.


Item #d94jun48

"Climate Change and India's Energy Policy Options: New Perspectives on Sectoral CO2 Emissions and Incremental Costs," J. Parikh, S. Gokarn, Global Environ. Change, 3(3), 276-291, Sep. 1993.

Examines the flows of energy through a 60-sector input-output model. Direct emissions of CO2 are highest in the electricity sector; combined direct and indirect emissions are highest in the construction industry. Gives examples of potential energy savings.
