The global nature of the energy problem has already been brought out clearly by the recent sharp increases in the price of OPEC oil. One can argue from the intersubstitutability of energy carriers for most purposes that what is true for oil would also be largely valid for Energy in general. It is thus natural to view the world as an integral entity in this context and the characteristic environment of IIASA affords an excellent opportunity for doing so. The institute is non-governmental by nature, flexible in outlook, and supported by the nations of the East and the West alike. We are accordingly able to approach and communicate with many groups in literally all parts of the world and it is appropriate for us to have a global look at the medium and long term prospects of energy supply and demand.
