Energy plays a vital role in economic and social development. The analysis of energy issues and policy options is therefore a vital area of study. This book presents a hierarchical modelling scheme intended to support energy planning and policy analysis in developing countries. The authors introduce the concept of 'Integrated National energy Planning' (INEP), and examine the spreadsheet models, optimisation models, and linear planning models which energy planners use. Environmental considerations are also introduced into the analysis. Techniques are then applied to two important energy subsectors, electricity and fuelwood, before problems of integration and policy implementation are discussed. Throughout the book, the authors examine actual practice in developing countries. Illustrative case material is drawn from Egypt, West Africa, Sudan, Pakistan, Colombia, India, Sri Lanka and Morocco. This book will be of interest to students and practitioners of energy planning, and to those concerned with the wider development implications of energy policy.

"The authors make a definite contribution to the field of energy policy and related areas. The use of case studies to supplement theoretical issues makes the work accessible to reasearchers and practicioners alike." The International Trade Journal "The authors make a definite contribution to the field of energy policy and related areas. The use of case studies to supplement theoretical issues makes the work accessible to reseachers and practitioners alike." Alfred Lewis, International Trade Journal
