Computer modeling has played a significant role in the evaluation of possible sources of energy as well as the consequences of the use of energy on the environment. In this paper the contributions of IBM scientists to improve models in the fields of air pollution, solar energy, plasma physics, coal gasification, and energy conservation are summarized. These contributions include not only better numerical and programming techniques but improved mathematical models based upon advances in understanding of the physical processes involved.
