  • In the year 2000 energy again made the headlines. Energy management programs that became dormant were revitalized. Companies again became aware that the energy problems of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s did not go away. The California “power crisis” indeed could spread to other states and not only impact a company’s profitability but could also put many out of business. The first edition of Plant Engineers and Managers Guide was written in 1977 and it was the first book to address the need for industrial energy management....

  • The whole world is in the grip of energy crisis and the pollution manifesting itself in the spiraling cost of energy and uncomforted due to increase in pollution as well as the depletion of conventional energy resources and increasing curve of pollution elements. To meet these challenges one way is to check growing energy demand but that would show down the economic growth as first step and to develop nonpolluting energy conversion system as second step. It is commonly accepted that the standard of living increases with increasing energy consumption per capita.

  • In the early 1970s, it was clear that the world economy was facing recession and that the four-fold increase in crude-oil prices by OPEC, a monetary crisis, and inflation were the main reasons for such a trend. The four-fold increase in crude-oil prices in 1974, which was intensified in 1979, is why 1974 and 1979 are called the years of “the first” and “the second crude-oil shock”, respectively. Increases in crude-oil prices had an effect on all importing countries, more precisely on their economic development.

  • The energy crisis of the mid 1970’s gave birth to a movement to conserve energy. Over the ensuing years much has been done to reduce the energy consumption of new and existing buildings. Lighting efficiency has improved so much that today we use ½ the wattage without sacrificing lumens. Improved construction methods, better insulation and high efficiency windows have also helped reduce energy consumption. However, all of these measures have resulted in a reduction of Sensible heat gains while Latent heat gains have increased.

  • Until recently, the planet was a large world in which human activities and their effects were neatly compartmentalized within nations, within sectors (energy, agriculture, trade), and within broad areas of concern (environment, economics, social). These compartments have begun to dissolve. This applies in particular to the various global 'crises' that have seized public concern, particularly over the past decade. These are not separate crises: an environmental crisis, a development crisis, an energy crisis. They are all one....

  • By 2050, Chinese and global agriculture are expected to enter a new era of development. Global population increase and economic development, particularly in developing countries, will lead to greater human demand for food and fiber. The demand for multifunctional agriculture will also increase as the worsening global energy crisis induces the rise of the biomass energy industry. Demand growth, diversification and market expansion provide unlimited reverie for the future development of agriculture.

  • There are also institutional issues to resolve. A path-dependent technology pattern has developed in the energy field that encourages the current centralized generation model of energy supply. When shifting away the capital investments in technology from centrally planned facilities toward distributed generation, renewable energy technologies and their prospective customers must fight against a tide of perceptions, practices, and market structures designed to facilitate the old central-station ways.

  • Outside the US, Europe and Japan, the channels of propagation of the crisis were different. Emerging market economies that had strengthened their banks’ capital levels in the aftermath of banking crises in the 1990s experienced no financial crisis per se. There were, however, knock-on effects through other channels. Along with the disruption to global financial markets, for example, came a decline in cross-border financial flows and a collapse in exports. We start by looking at the growth experience across an array of countries over the period.

  • Abstract Here I tackle three major issues, climate change, financial crisis and national security, to disclose the weak points of current remedies and propose sustainable solutions. Global warming and the unexpected 2008 financial crisis will undoubtedly impact all nations. Treating those two critical issues solely by painkiller solutions will fail because only adverse consequences are healed, not their causes. Therefore, all sources of issues must be treated at the same time by enhancing collaboration between politicians and scientists....

  • The causes and consequences of the Third World debt crisis have been analyzed by scholars for more than a decade. 3 Its origin lay partly in the international expansion of U.S. banking organizations during the 1950s and 1960s in conjunction with the rapid growth in the world economy, including the LDCs. For example, for more than a decade before oil prices quadrupled in 1973–74, the growth rate in the real domestic product of the LDCs av- eraged about 6 percent annually. For the remainder of the 1970s, the growth rate slowed but averaged a respectable 4 to 5 percent.
