Energy is essential, be it for cooking, lighting, or industrial application. However, people have yet to learn how best to use natural resources. Sustainable development depends on efficient use of resources, and specifically on a widespread use of clean and renewable energy. Broad use of fossil fuels threatens climate and health because of dangerous emissions, leading to high social and economic costs. Today there are still more than 2 billion people who do not have access to sufficient energy.
As global population rises and the world economy grows, challenges will also increase. This will be particularly the case if we simply continue or copy conventional approaches. Therefore intelligent, sustainable energy projects of strategic global importance need to be implemented and promoted.

Energy for a Sustainable Future Many of us at UNH are familiar with the University's sustainability initiative. That initiative involves much more than just energy issues. For more information on the sustainability initiative contact the Office of Sustainability Programs in Room 206 Nesmith Hall (Email: One way to define sustainability is that our energy use 1) will not use natural resources faster than they can be naturally replenished, 2) will not create waste faster than it can be safely assimilated into a natural cycle, and 3) will allow for the distribution of energy resources in a fair and equitable manner. Three areas where we can most readily demonstrate sustainable energy practices are energy conserving behaviors, utilization of energy efficient technology, and selection of sustainable energy sources.

We can and must act now to put energy development on a fully sustainable path. The keys to delivering energy sustainability, as reaffirmed at Sydney,
Sustainable energy systems are achievable, but the challenges are many and need to be tackled urgently if sustainability is to be achieved in this century. This was the principal conclusion reached by the 19th World Energy Congress , held in Sydney, Australia in September 2004. The World Energy Council (WEC) endorses this conclusion but would add that we do not have a century to act! We can and must act now to put energy development on a fully sustainable path. The keys to delivering energy sustainability, as reaffirmed at Sydney, are to:
  • Keep all energy options open No technology should be idolised or demonised and energy efficiency must be increased.
  • Ensure the necessary investment in energy infrastructure For this, cost-reflective energy prices are essential - systems which do not pay for themselves are ultimately unsustainable.
  • Adopt a pragmatic approach to market reform This would accommodate specific policy measures to achieve certain objectives, while allowing for the operation of the market to the maximum possible extent.
  • Place priority on the measures needed to ensure reliability of supply Above all this depends on energy diversity, supported by sound market design and improved generating plant performance.

Transformations in the Global Economy
An International Symposium Energy: Future Strategies for Sustainability In this post-Cold War world, the international economy is increasingly becoming the arena where security concerns are played out. As societies look to the future, there is rising recognition that national securty doctrine must encompass economic security. Maintaining economic strength requires energy and a healthy environment to support and sustain it. Establishing stable supplies of energy at stable prices has been considered a security issue since the industrial revolution, a situation most recently accentuated by Desert Storm. David Criswell William Moomaw Energy is linked to virtually all forms of economic activity. It drives the turbines of industrialized societies and is the engine of development for lesser developed countries (LDCs). Economic productivity relies on energy and energy use affects and is determined by the environment. Sustainability, both environmentally and economically, had become the emphasis of development strategy as opposed to the focus solely on economic growth. This was highlighted by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development last year, in addtition to the Brundtland Commission's report "Our Common Future". With the introduction of the steam engine, a shift was made to fossil fuels from fuelwood and work animals. Today, the economy's reliance on fossil fuels raises both political and environmental problems. The transformations in energy use that have occurred in the 20th century were prompted by the oil crises of the 1970s. These shocks to the global economy led to increased energy efficiency in industrialized countries, while LDCs faced mounting indebtedness. The oil crises also had the effect of, due to resulting energy consumption, decoupling economic growth and energy consumption in developed countries.

Sustainable Energy
It is now widely accepted that current patterns of power generation and utilisation are unsustainable, and that there is a need to radically transform how we as a society perceive and achieve our objectives in this regard, particularly in the light of the serious threats presented by climate change. The concept of Renewable Energy conjures up images of solar panels and wind turbines generating electricity without damaging the environment and without further releasing the climate altering potential of fossil fuels. Yet the need to use energy in more efficient and effective ways is essential to compliment the development of these - and other - renewable energy resources.
These pages look at the European and National perspective on sustainable and renewable energy along with details of the work of the North West Regional Assembly in this field, and in particular, the work of the Assembly in leading on the development of a Sustainable Energy Strategy for the North West.

Progress Report
FAO, June 1997 Sustainable energy The challenge Energy use in most countries is unsustainable in the long term, from both natural resource and environmental points of view. In rural areas throughout the developing world, the situation is more critical. The main - and often only - sources of energy for household use and food production are diminishing supplies of fuelwood, along with biomass residues and human and animal power. Dependence on these traditional energy sources is associated with poverty, health risks and human drudgery. The "energizing" of the food production chain - both quantitively and qualitatively - based on diversified sources and a better use of commercial energy is one key to achieving food security and improving the living conditions of rural populations. However, breaking the current energy bottleneck must also be sustainable - environmentally sound, socially acceptable and economically viable. The challenge is also an opportunity. By using the potential offered by renewable energy sources, agro-ecotechnologies, and innovative institutional and financial arrangements, rural areas could "leapfrog" to more sustainable energy systems and food security. These rural areas could become examples to other sectors of society, both in developing and industrialized countries.
