PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS... ENERGY: ANALYSES AND PROJECTIONS
issue: "Energy Use in Asian Cities," S. Tyler
(Intl. Develop. Res. Ctr., Tanglin POB 101, Singapore 9124), J.
Sathaye, N. Goldman, Eds., Energy, 19(5), May 1994
Comprises nine papers from the Urban Household Energy and Air
Pollution Network project, sponsored by the International
Development Research Centre, Ottawa. The project relates
differences in household characteristics to observed patterns of
household fuel use. It is the first comparative household- and
air-quality survey developed for and undertaken by independent
research teams in several countries at the same time.
from Energy Policy, 22(2), Feb. 1994:
"The Effect of Vehicle Speeds on Emissions," M.
Ferguson (Earth Resour. Res. [ERR], London, UK), 103-106. Used
the ERR Transport Emissions Model to show that 3.1% of CO2
emissions could be saved in the U.K. if current speed limits were
enforced, or 7% if a maximum limit of 50 mph were imposed.
"Sustainable Use of Energy: A Normative Energy Scenario,
1990-2050," J. van Ettinger (Van Ettinger & Assoc.,
Zwanenkade 88, 2925 AS Krimpen a/d Ijssel, Neth.), 111-118.
Discusses the future of sustainability if the four main measures
to reduce CO2 emissions from energy use are applied: energy
efficiency; switching to natural gas; CO2 recovery; and
development of alternative energy sources. A 50% global CO2
reduction could be reached by applying the four measures with
different emphasis in industrialized and developing countries.
in ibid., 21(12), Dec. 1993:
"Mind the Gap: The Vicious Circle of Measuring Automobile
Fuel Use," L. Schipper (Intl. Energy Studies, Lawrence
Berkeley Lab., Univ. Calif., 1 Cyclotron Rd., 90-4000, Berkeley
CA 94720), M.J. Figueroa et al., 1173-1190. Major gaps exist
between estimates of road gasoline and actual sales data for
gasoline, diesel and other fuels. Presents calculations for total
automobile fuel use for a variety of OECD countries.
"US Demilitarization and Global Warming: An Empirical
Investigation of the Environmental Peace Dividend," A.G.
Heyes (Dept. Econ., Birkbeck Coll., Univ. London, 13-15 Gresse
St., London W1P 1PA, UK), C. Liston-Heyes, 1217-1224, Dec. 1993.
Uses input-output estimates of the direct and indirect
"energy intensities" of different categories of
government and non-government expenditures under
demilitarization. The possible effects range from adverse to
beneficial, depending sensitively on the manner in which the
funds saved are distributed.
Energy Intensity in Chinese Industry: The Relative Importance of
Structural Shift and Intensity Change," J.E. Sinton (Energy
Analysis Prog., Lawrence Berkeley Lab., Univ. Calif., Berkeley CA
94720), M.D. Levine, ibid., 22(3), 239-256, Mar.
the Credibility of Energy Projections from Trends in Past Data:
The US Energy Sector," A.I. Shlyakhter, D.M. Kammen (Woodrow
Wilson Sch., 444 Robertson Hall, Princeton Univ., Princeton NJ
08544) et al., ibid., 22(2), Feb. 1994.
from ibid., 21(12), Dec. 1993:
"Modelling the Transport Sector Fuel Demand for
Developing Economies," F. Birol (Res. Div., OPEC, Obere
Donaustr. 93, 1020 Vienna, Austria), N. Guerer, 1163-1172.
"Energy and Environment: Nordic Energy Scenarios for 2010
and 2030," O. Benestad (Ctr. Develop. & Environ., Univ.
Oslo, POB 1116 Blindern, N-0317 Oslo, Nor.), L. Brinck et al.,
1225-1236. Analyzes the prospect of an energy system which would
prevent the critical loads of NOx and SO2 and the present
concentration of CO2 from being exceeded.
