The Workshop on Energy Demand was held by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) at Schloss Laxenburg, Austria, Flay 22-23, 1975, as part of the Energy Systems Project. The Energy Project was started in 1973 under the leadership of Professor Wolf Haefele. Professor William D. Nordhaus of IIASA and Yale University (USA) was the overall chairman of the Workshop. The Workshop was devoted to the understanding and modeling of energy demand, both from an engineering and from a behavioral point of view.

Fifty-five people from fifteen countries East and West attended the Workshop. The participants are directly involved in energy demand modeling -- in government energy planning offices, in research divisions of the energy industry (mostly coal and electricity), in university or non-profit research institutes. In a number of instances the participants came from all three areas of activities within the same country.

The twenty-nine papers submitted to the Workshop were discussed under five headings: I. Methodology; II. Individual Sectors; III. Individual Economies: 3.1 Eastern Europe and the USSR; 3.2 Western Europe; 3.3 North America and Others; IV. International Studies; and V. Linkages to the Rest of the Economy.

The Workshop proceedings begin with welcoming addresses by Professors Haefele and Nordhaus, and they are followed by the papers presented at the Workshop and summaries of the discussions. The Workshop concludes with Professor Nordhaus' overview of the issues and problems discussed by the Workshop.

This volume of the proceedings was prepared by Professor Nordhaus and Mrs. Claire P. Doblin.
