This is the International Energy Agency's 2005 review of the Czech Republic's energy policies and programmes. It systematically examines general energy policy, energy and the environment, and energy demand and end-use efficiency. It examines developments and prospects for each of the major sources of energy including oil, coal, natural gas, and renewables as well as for electricity, nuclear power, and co-generation. It also reviews developments in energy RDandD. Key recommendations include pursuing greater energy efficiency and emissions reductions and reinforcing the strength and independence

This publication examines the key developments and challenges facing the Danish energy sector, under the headings of: general energy policy, energy and climate change, energy efficiency, renewable energy, electricity, fossil fuels, energy research and development. The review finds that Denmark has had a very pro-active energy policy in both energy efficiency and renewable energy whilst at the same time opening its gas and power markets to competition. The percentage of electricity generation produced by renewable energy increased to 25 per cent in 2004, although renewable support policies came

Recently, there have been growing concerns about the availability and cost of energy and about environ. impacts of fossil energy use, especially global climate change. Those combined concerns have rekindled interest in energy efficiency, energy conservation, and the development and commercialization of renewable energy technologies. This report describes federal programs that provide grants, loans, loan guarantees, and other direct or indirect regulatory incentives for energy efficiency, energy conservation, and renewable energy. For each program, the report provides the administering agency,

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. The U.S. faces a critical challenge to transform our current fossil fuel based energy economy to a sustainable energy economy. This transformation must be achieved to increase U.S. energy independence, enhance environ. stewardship and reduce energy and carbon intensity, and generate continued economic growth. These are the six topics in this report: 1: A comprehensive Fed. strategy. 2: Private and Fed. support for sustainable energy R&D is inadequate. 3: The U.S. energy economy does not value the environ. as a public good. 4: Hum

Slovakia has implemented a range of thorough energy reforms over a short period of time with impressive results. As a medium-sized new EU member state, it plays a strategic role in European natural gas supply. With limited domestic energy resources, Slovakia relies on imports for almost 80% of its net primary energy supply, mainly from Russia. Between 1990 and 2003, as a result of structural reforms and enery price increases, total primary energy supply decreased by 14 % and energy and carbon intensities fell by 30% and 43%, respectively. The energy reforms have now entered a crucial stage, si

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Energy is an important input in growing, processing, packaging, distributing, storing, preparing, serving, and disposing of food. In the U.S., use of energy along the food chain for food purchases by or for U.S. households increased between 1997 and 2002 at more than six times the rate of increase in total domestic energy use. This increase in food-related energy flows is over 80% of energy flow increases nationwide over the period. The use of more energy-intensive technologies throughout the U.S. food system accounted for half o
