Thin report is one of a series describing a multidisciplinary multinational IIASA research study on Management of Energy/Environment Systems. The primary objective of the research is the development of quantitative tools for regional energy and environment policy design and analysis -- or, in a broader sense, the development of a coherent, realistic approach to energy/environment system management. The outputs of this research program include concepts, applied methodologies, and case studies. During 1975, case studies were emphasized; they focussed on three greatly differing regions, namely, the German Democratic Republic, the Rhone-Alpes region in southern France, and the state of Washington in the U.S.A. The IIASA research was conducted within a network of collaborating institutions composed of the Institut fuer Energetik, Leipzig; the Institut Economique et Juridique de L'Energie, Grenoble; and the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

This report is concerned with the description of a systems approach to the analysis of environmental impact of electrical generating plants. The research evolved from efforts at the University of Wisconsin on the Wisconsin Energy Models and was extended at IIASA to treat impacts occurring in other regions of the world and to concepts and methodologies under study at IIASA.

Other publications on the management of energy/environment systems are listed at the end of this report.
