Energy Futures

A World Study
  • Bernard I. Spinrad

Abstract

Between 1973 and 1979, a major energy project was conducted at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Laxenburg, Austria. IIASA is a sort of international think tank, set up on the initiative of countries of the Western and Communist blocs to consider nonpolitical problems that transcend their rivalry. The energy problem certainly fits into this category.
