Overview

Energy 2000, proceedings from the 8th in an international series of global energy forums, is now available in book format. These papers provide a broad-based perspective on not only technical energy developments, but a detailed examination into other aspects such as economic and policy assessments, global energy issues, energy efficiency and conservation, as well as architecture and international law. Also presented are individual and collected views on renewables, oil and gas, coal and nuclear.

ENERGEX '2000, the 8th in an international series of global energy forums, was held in Las Vegas, July 23-28, 2000. The first in the series was held in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada in cooperation, coordination and communication with technical societies, federal and provincial governments and industry. The majority of papers presented at the 8th global energy forum are contained in these proceedings and represent over 200 papers from 45 countries out of a total of over 400 accepted abstracts. These papers will provide the reader with a broad based perspective on not only technical energy developments but, as consistent with the International Energy Foundation's objectives, a detailed examination into other aspects such as economic and policy assessments, global energy issues such as global climatic change, energy efficiency and conservation, architecture and international law. ENERGEX '2000 also provided the opportunity for researchers internationally to present their individual and collected views related to the diverse sources of energy available to mankind. These sources include renewables, oil and gas, coal, and nuclear. From ENERGEX 2000 has resulted this new book!

Since the inception of the ENERGEX series in 1982, an open door policy has been established so that any researcher from either the developed or the emerging nations will have an equal opportunity to present their individual or collected technical, economic or human dimensional assessments and analyses on an equal footing. Through this participation, researchers worldwide are provided with a wider range of opportunity to expand our horizons with respect to the continued use of fossil energies and nuclear energy combined with energy conservation and efficiency. This opens the door of opportunity in the 21st century with respect to the rapid developments and utilization of renewable energies and fuel cells. Integrated within this global energy forum were inputs from academia, industry and government on specific issues related to carbon sequestration, fuel cells, fossil fuels, hydrogen and the role of the present day energy standards of oil and gas, coal and nuclear energies

In expanding the global energy picture, the Foundation developed the conference with the theme "Energy-International Cooperation, Coordination and Communication: The Beginning of a New Millennium." Consistent with this theme we are pleased that ENERGEX '2000 developed the program in concert with the Nevada Test Site Development Corporation (NTS).
