ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOURCES: AN ANALYSIS OF THEIR ROLE IN ENERGY POLICY

Combined heat and power, substitute natural gas, solar energy, and wave power are examined then compared with traditional and nuclear energy sources. The study refers to Great Britain's needs and energy policy up to the year 2025. Wave power is shown to be the most attractive potential source. Nuclear power shows poor performance compared to other alternatives. A power demand growth rate leveling off at 1 percent per year is assumed. Electric car development is considered very probable and beneficial to rational energy use.
