    A simple and practical graphical method for making international or interregional comparisons of energy productivity has been developed and applied to some specific significant cases. The method is based on definitions of national energy productivity as gross domestic product (GDP) per unit of energy consumed, annual per capita energy consumption, and the product of these two numbers which is GDP ...

    Voltage reduction is a practice which has long been used by electric power companies during emergencies to reduce peak demand. Since 1973, some have suggested that it can also be an effective energy conservation method. Others disagree. The purposes of this paper are to: 1) present what is known about the effects of voltage reductions on real power, reactive power, and energy, for individual and c... View full abstract»

    Engineering education has placed its major emphasis on developing graduates with a high degree of technical competence in the traditional engineering disciplines. However, society's expectations for the role of an engineer now reflect the increased concern for inclusion of social policy considerations in engineering decision making. Engineering education must respond to these changes so that engin... View full abstract»

    The nation and telecommunications systems are confronted with a continuing energy problem resulting from limited resources to meet an ever increasing demand. The Bell System provides numerous examples of ways in which demand for energy may be reduced, resulting in conservation of resources and preservation of the environment. The Beli System provides a telecommunications network linking nearly 185... View full abstract»

    Cogeneration has become a "buzz" word in the energy industry of late and it is appropriate to review the history, benefits, penalties, and attitudes that apply to cogeneration. By cogeneration, we mean the production of industrial process steam as a by-product of electric generation (or, as industry considers it, the generation of electricity as a by-product of thermal production). The first cogen... View full abstract»

    Economic and geopolitical constraints on global nonrenewable energy supplies will force many nations, especially the developing countries, to accelerate their use of local renewable energy sources. This paper discusses some of the technical, economic, and socioeconomic aspects of the application of renewable (solar) energy sources for rural development in resource-poor population-rich developing c...
