Fueling development : energy technologies for the developing countries.




This report examines the delivery of energy services in developing countries and how the United States can help to improve these energy services while minimizing environmental impacts. OTA examines the technologies and policies that will enable more efficient use of energy and the most promising new sources of energy supply. This assessment was request by the Senate Committee on Governamental Affairs; the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and its Subcommittee on Energy and Power; the Subcommittees on Human Rights and International Organizations and on Africa of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs; the Subcommitte on International Development, Finance, Trade, and Monetary Policy of the House Banking Committe; and individual members of the Senate Committe on Environment and Public Works, the House Select Committe on Hunger, and the Congressional Competitiveness Caucus. This repor builds on the analysis presented in the interim report of this assessment, Energy in Developing Countries, which OTA published in 1991. The assessment, as a whole, takes a broad look at energy options and opportunities in the many countries of the developing world. It finds that there are many valuable lessons that developing countries can learn from the prior experiences of the United States and other industrial countries..
