ENERGY POLICY


Item #d97apr20

European Energy Policies in a Changing Environment, F. McGowan, 183 pp., 1996, $59 pbk. (Springer).

Examines the evolution of energy policy in several European countries, particularly the responses in France, Germany, Italy and the U.K., to the challenges of economic liberalization and environmental protection.


Item #d97apr21

Energy and Environmental Challenges in Central Asia and the Caucasus - Windows for Cooperation, 264 pp., 1996, $56 (TERI).

This region, the next frontier in the growth and development of the world's hydrocarbon industry, has all major players vying for a share of the pie. This book is the result of an initiative by TERI to promote better understanding of, and greater cooperation with, the countries of Central Asia and the Caucasus. Separately authored chapters address topics including oil and war in Azerbaijan and Armenia; promoting the use of natural gas; promoting the use of clean coal technologies; the power grid of Central Asia; renewable energy potential; and individual country papers for China, India, Iran, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.


Item #d97apr23

New Electricity 21: Designing a Sustainable Electric System for the Twenty-First Century, 912 pp., 1996, $147 (OECD).

A conference proceedings that examines ways to increase electricity use for sustainable energy development, and assesses the role of power producers in responding to global climate change issues. Also addresses technology priorities for supplying electricity in developing countries and transition economies, as well as links among the power industry structure, regulatory policies and technological innovation.


Item #d97apr24

Three proceedings from ACEEE:

Energy Efficiency and the Utility of the Future (Proceedings from the 1996 ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings), 10 volumes, 1996, $180. Also available on CD-ROM (Adobe Acrobat), combined with 292 papers from the 1994 Summer Study, Building Tomorrow: The Path to Energy Efficiency; $135. The 1996 proceedings contains 247 peer-reviewed papers on residential and commercial buildings that cover topics including energy efficiency, human dimensions of energy consumption, and energy and environmental policy.

Pre-Proceedings from the 1995 ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Industry: Partnerships, Productivity and the Environment, two volumes, $35.

Proceedings: Workshop on Partnerships for Industrial Productivity through Energy Efficiency, 270 pp., $30. From a 1993 workshop.


Item #d97apr25

TERI Energy Data, Directory and Yearbook ["TEDDY 1996/97"], 470 pp., 1996, $98 hbk./$70 pbk. (TERI). Also available as Teddy Online.

Provides a wealth of data on India, and sets it in context by providing overviews of the implications of the government's policies for the Indian economy, the latest developments in energy supply and demand, and the environmental impacts of energy use. Chapters cover, for example, the globalization of the Indian economy, energy-economy linkages, energy supplies, energy demands by various sectors, India's forests, and the greenhouse effect and global warming.


Item #d97apr26

Renewable Energy Development in India: Analysis of U.S. Policy Experience, 153 pp., 1995, $33 (TERI).

TERI-North America, TERI-India, and the World Resources Institute selected 30 U.S. and Indian experts to formulate specific policy guidelines, which were then presented to the Indian Ministry of Non-conventional Energy Sources. The significance of this book can be measured by events which have since occurred, including establishing of a solar energy enterprise zone in Rajasthan, creation of a renewable energy project support office at the Indian mission of USAID, and expansion of the scope of rural electrification to include decentralized power generation through renewable energy technologies.
