Item #d95may87

Global Prospects for Renewable Energy, M. Jefferson, Sep. 1994. Contact World Energy Council (WEC), 34 St. James's St., London SW1A 1HD, UK (tel: 44 171 930 3966; fax: 44 171 925 0452).

A conference paper from the 1994 World Energy Congress. Concludes that the global prospects for renewable energy are bright, but over the next few decades, the pace and scale of development are likely to be more modest than many enthusiasts proclaim. The potential for renewables is large: as much as 50% of global primary energy supplies could be derived from new renewable sources by the year 2100.
