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