Energy

Alternative Fuels Data CenterMany alternative fuels such as electric, biodiesel and solar are being used today in place of fossil fuels like oil. The ADFC is the U.S. Department of Energy═s resource for information on these fuels

International Project for Sustainable Energy Paths (IPSEP) This is a private research organization that investigates innovative "no regrets" strategies that could mitigate this threat of global climate change. Research focuses on energy and development policies that can reduce carbon emissions from fossil fuel use while saving money and improving the prospects of poorer and richer nations alike. It was started in 1986 by Dr. Florentin Krause, then a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory's Energy and Environment Division.

L'institut de l'│nergie et de l'environnement de la Francophonie - IEPF is a subsidiary body of the Agence intergouvernementale de la Francophonie. It's mission is to initiate and support capacity building initiatives at the national level and to promote partnerships in the fields of Energy and Environment. Includes full-text issues of the Institute═s bulletin.

UNESCO, World Solar Commission - WSC was established in March 1995 to provide high-level leadership and to encourage wider use of all forms of renewable energy- essential in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and as a contribution to eradicating poverty through energy

U.S. DOE, Biofuels for Sustainable Transportation - Biofuels are alcohols, ethers, esters, and other chemicals made from cellulosic biomass such as herbaceous and woody plants, agricultural and forestry residues, and a large portion of municipal solid and industrial waste. The term biofuels can refer to fuels for electricity and fuels for transportation.

Statistics

WRI Energy and Materials Statistics -  Production data for fossil fuels, primary electricity, and natural minerals and materials; energy consumption data for commercial and traditional fuels; and information on changing trends in production of electricity.

Americas

Inter-American Development Bank, Energy Conservation (IADB) ┐ Conservation and alternative energy policies and publications by the Bank. The Bank supports borrowing member country efforts to strengthen environmental legislation, establish regulations and systems of incentives, and adopt sanctions aimed at promoting environmental conservatio.

Organización Latinoamericana de Energia (OLADE)Publications on reduction of greenhouse gases, environmental impact of exploiting geothermal energy and developing hydroelectric power sources, etc.

OAS Renewable Energy in the Americas (REIA) Program - REIA offers government officials access to information on renewable energy and energy efficient technologies, and serves as a point of contact for the private sector into the energy sector in the Americas. REIA carries out institutional and technical capacity building programs, and sponsors periodic conferences and workshops on sustainable energy technologies

UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC/CEPAL), Energy ┐ Abstracts on documents on energy conservation and management, geothermal resources, privatization of utilities.

Asia-Pacific

Asia-Pacific Economic CooperationAPEC published reports on energy consumption, renewable energy and environmentally friendly transportation systems.

UN, Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), Energy Resources ┐ The Energy Resources Section organizes meetings and group training and conceptualizes, designs and implements regional technical cooperation projects in the areas of:  Energy for Sustainable Development , Promotion of Energy Efficiency and Conservation, and Enhanced Application of Renewable Energy Technologies
