Abstract

The IIASA Energy Program is concerned with global aspects of energy systems in terms of resources, demands, options, strategies, and constraints. One constraint on an energy system is its potential impact on climate. The IIASA Energy and Climate Subtask, which is supported by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), is studying the possible impact on global climate of the three major medium-to long-term energy options: nuclear, fossil fuel, and solar.

These proceedings deal with the potential impact on global climate of large-scale solar energy conversion. The volume provides information on characteristics of solar energy conversion systems and on possible ways in which they could alter climatic boundary conditions. The information presented also forms the basis for a continuing study of the climate constraints of the solar option within the Energy and Climate Subtask, and in cooperation with other groups.
