Energy Policy is a key area in each of the world's economies and the oil shocks of the 1970's empasized how important energy had become. "Models for Energy Policy" analyzes a range of models of energy use. In recent recent years a growing awareness of environomental issues has had a major impact on perceptions of energy use as growing numbers of people express concern at the relationship betweem energy and the greenhouse effect, acid rain and the depletion of the ozone layer.This has created a demand for more and better models of energy. "Models for Energy Policy" covers short, medium and long term forecasting, regional, national and international impacts and environmental issues. It also covers models of individual sources of energy and the energy sector as a whole as well as formal models and non-formal approaches. The interaction between energy and the environment is singularly complex, and "Models for Energy Policy" integrates physical, technical, economic and social concerns.
