The IJGEI is a refereed, international journal providing an international forum and authoritative source of information, analyses and discussions on renewable and non-renewable energy resources, energy-economic systems, energy and environment, international energy policy issues, technological innovation and new energy sources. Since the 1970s, attention has been focused on energy resources in the search for sustainable and environmentally non-destructive economic development. The confrontation of ecological limits to growth is not only a technological challenge. Economic, social and natural sciences must be brought together in new perspectives, responding to the concerns expressed worldwide for ecological, social, economic and political dimensions of sustainability. The IJGEI envisages the use of analytical tools and concepts coming from many different disciplines and fields of experience, including energy analysis, ecological economics, systems analysis applied to environmental and economic systems, technology and risk assessment, integrated environmental assessment, law, political studies and the human sciences. It seeks to establish an effective channel for communication between policymakers, government agencies, concerned citizens, consumer bodies, industry, public authorities and members of academic and research institutions. The IJGEI was initiated in 1990 by UNESCO. It is currently produced with the cooperation of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (Energy Division), and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). It seeks to promote an innovative research agenda in support of international cooperation - including regional (as well as global) perspectives such as Europe, the Mediterranean, India, East Asia, the South Pacific, Latin America. Its interdisciplinary scope will support a wide reflection that can help decision makers and all citizens in the implementation of energy policies for sustainable development.
