Adoption and Development of Energy Technologies


This review of energy alternatives for local and national scale projects will focus on the ethical implications inherent in different research options for energy production and delivery. It will include development of innovation in new science and translational research, diffusion of technology, and energy diversity. It will also consider global networking and IT. It will apply an ethical matrix to analyze points of different alternative energy technologies, with case studies. Under this Working Group a series of indepth case studies on selected technologies will be prepared.  

Meetings of the Working group were held: 12 June 2008, Bangkok, Thailand [Meeting Report (pdf)]; 16-19 June 2009, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and 25 August 2009, Bangkok, Thailand.
