Spring 2008, volume 33, number 2 (copyright 2010)
Thomaz Alvares de Azevedo, “Fueling Brazil: The Effects of the Ethanol Cluster in the Local Community,” The production of biofuels has been at center stage in an array of debates involving national security, environment, and food security. While much of the debate has focused on how the growth of biofuels affects food production, other socioeconomic effects of the burgeoning biofuel industry in developing countries, for example, on immigration and urbanization, have been less often considered. In this paper we analyze the broader community impact of a sugarcane ethanol business cluster in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.
Jack A. Fuller and Aseem Tiwari, “Reciprocating Engines: Their Application in Commercial Sectors,” A primary objective of this research was to focus on the application of reciprocating engines in a wide range of commercial sectors. As part of this paper, we collected data on the number of reciprocating engines used in three main applications: (1) base load, (2) peaking, and (3) standby.
Sadek Boussena and Catherine Locatelli, “The Bases of a New Organization of the Russian Oil Sector: Between Private and State Ownership,” The reforms and privatization programs of the 1990s structured the Russian oil industry around a few large national and private companies. Today, we see a movement in another direction as the Russian authorities reassert control over parts of the oil sector, which has implications for ownership structure between the state and the private sector. This paper examines the factors that may explain this evolution and the government’s rationale.
Mansur Masih, Mohammed A. Al-Sahlawi, and Lurion De Mello, “What Drives Carbon-Dioxide Emissions: Income or Electricity Generation? Evidence from Saudi Arabia,” This study investigates the Granger causality relationship among income, electricity generation, and carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions in Saudi Arabia.
Oona Nanka-Bruce, “The Socioeconomic Drivers of Rural Electrification in Sub-Saharan Africa,” This paper contributes the first analytical study of the socioeconomic factors that have a significant impact on rural electrification (RE) development in sub-Saharan Africa. The study employs cross-sectional data for 24 of the 47 countries in the sub-Saharan region and finds factors, including the Human Development Index, wealth distribution, institutional development, and urban population size of a country, to have a significant impact on RE development.
Shelton Woods, “Oil for China: The Sino-Russian Waltz,” It is called the biggest soap opera in oil transfer history. The East Siberian Pacific Ocean Pipeline (ESPOP), proposed last century, was slated originally to transfer oil from Russia to China. Both countries expressed excitement at the prospect of working together to build the world’s most expensive pipeline. This article details the geopolitical intrigue, historical context, economic implications, and energy resource implications that are inexorably tied together in the ESPOP story.
Fotios Chatzitheodoridis, Argyrios D. Kolokontes, and Lavrentios Vasiliadis, “Lignite Mining and Lignite-Fired Power Generation in Western Macedonia of Greece: Economy and Environment,” During the post-World War II period and particularly after the 1973 oil crisis, Greek energy policy was based on lignite mining and lignite-fired power generation plants, which was heavily concentrated in the Western Macedonia region. This led to the creation of a type of economic duality in Western Macedonia, with the eastern portion becoming dependent on lignite mining, bearing the environmental consequences of its extraction and burning, and lacking economic diversification in relation to the western part. The authors examine this disparity and discus the factors leading to a movement away from lignite usage. This study includes an input-output analysis showing there is a more b
