Verlag: Elsevier Science & Technology
The papers in this volume were presented at the Energy and Resource Workshop Series at Texas AM University. Topics presented at the workshops were forums for the discussion of research concerning the economics of energy and other natural resources. Chapter topics include: new competition developing in the electric utility industry; the availability of fossil fuels throughout the coming century; innovations in natural gas exploration and production; and international cooperation to limit carbon emissions. This volume makes a timely and important addition to the series.
