The analysis of supply-demand interactions and of the social, economic, and technological implications of changes in demand level, induced by both supply constraints and changes in life style, is recognized as an important part of the IIASA Energy Program. A variety of analytical techniques is required to address this problem. It is probably not feasible, nor is it desirable to attempt to cover this diverse range of interactions with a single model. Rather, attention should be directed towards linking several models together based on consistent input data and the appropriate transfer of critical parameters between models. The linkages must be established initially with careful analysis and interpretation. As individual models evolve and the linkages become better defined, these may be strengthened.
