BOOKS AND PROCEEDINGS...
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.
Energy, Environment and Development, J. Goldenberg, 224 pp.,
1996, £30 hbk.; $23/£12.95 pbk. (Earthscan in the U.K.; Island in the
U.S.). Published in association with the Stockholm Environ. Inst.
Described as the first book to look at the inter-relationship among these
three sectors: energy, environment and development.
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.
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
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
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

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.
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.
