DSM and the Global Environment, 425 pp., $79.95 (Synergic Resour.).

Proceedings of a conference on DSM or demand-side management (Apr. 1991, Arlington, Va.), covering such topics as estimates of DSM impacts on electricity use and emissions, methods of incorporating environmental externalities, DSM and the U.S. Clean Air Act, transmission and distribution benefits of DSM, case studies, environmental dispatch, international perspectives.


Item #d91jul94

Electricity in the American Economy: Agent of Technological Progress, S.H. Schurr, C.C. Burwell et al., $45 (Greenwood).

Prepared under the auspices of the EPRI Energy Study Center, describes the critical role played by electric power in enhancing industrial productivity and energy efficiency. Relates several case studies to long-term national economic statistics.


Item #d91jul95

Energy Production, Consumption and Consequences, J.L. Helm, Ed., 296 pp., 1990, $35 (Nat. Acad. Press).

Prepared through the National Academy of Engineering, consists of individually authored, reviewed chapters in four sections: supply, demand and reappraisal; environmental issues; evolving vulnerabilities and opportunities; implications for strategy.

Item #d91jul96

The Energy Alternative: Changing the Way the World Works, W.C. Patterson, 186 pp., 1990, 16.99 (Boxtree, London). Reviewed by W. Donnelly in Energy Policy, pp. 188-189, Mar. 1991.

The author would have the public and decision makers focus upon services provided by fuels and energy rather than on the commodities themselves. This would allow for innovations in the use of alternative fuels and more efficient use of all fuels and energy.


Item #d91jul97

Green Energy: A Non-nuclear Response to the Greenhouse Effect, D. Toke, 180 pp., 1990, 4.95 (Greenprint, UK). Reviewed by S. Boyle in Energy Policy, pp. 86-87, Jan.-Feb. 1991.

Summarizes detailed technical arguments and data on the potential roles of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. Aimed at British socialists, according to the reviewer, yet very clearly details the basis of its analysis and recommended policies.
