Originally published in 1991, this volume number 6 in the Energy Policy Studies series focuses on important interconnections between energy use and global change issues such as upper atmosphere ozone depletion and global warming. Policy options for meeting these challenges are explored in eight contributed chapters that concentrate on Energy and the Environment, economic growth and industrialisation in Europe, a comparison of solar and nuclear options, as well costs surrounding electricity generation and sustainable development.
