The world's demand for energy will grow by some 60% in the next 25
years. Satisfying that demand in an economical and environmentally
acceptable manner is one of the most significant challenges facing
society. New technologies will play a central role in meeting this challenge, albeit conditioned by the economic, social, and political

will focus on the major forces shaping the World's energy future and
the technologies required to respond to them.
