|This issue of the IAEE Newsletter includes several keynote speeches from the Potsdam Conference as well as a summary of the meeting by Georg Erdmann. Lord David Howell, former UK Secretary of State for Energy posits that there is no such thing as full energy security and that the best kind of security, as far as it can be obtained, comes from diversity and the ability to switch between a variety of energy sources. Matthias Platzeck, in the opening address at the Potsdam Conference, discusses the energy situation in the State of Brandenburg, noting the importance of the brown coal industry to the State and to Germany. Vijay Vaitheeswaran argues that there are three powerful trends going on that promise to rewrite the rules of the energy game: the global move toward the liberalization of energy markets, the growing popular appeal of environmentalism and the recent surge of technological innovation in areas such as hydrogen fuel cells. Mamdouh Salameh comments that with the continued weakening of the U.S. dollar since 200 and with OPEC’s eleven members heavily reliant on oil revenues, OPEC members should seriously consider restructuring their oil-pricing policy by switching from the U.S. dollar to a basket of currencies made up of three equally-weighted currencies, namely the dollar, yen and euro. Guy Maisonnier notes that on the European continent, the price of natural gas is still directly linked to the oil market. Phillia Restiani, one of IAEE’s current student advisors, discusses the synergies between climate change adaptation and mitigation measures, noting that both are responses to climate change policies.|

Ali Hussain details nine reasons why, given the rise in prices, oil demand remains high and production has not increased significantly to meet the demand. James Dorian, Herman Franssen, and Dale Simbeck note that environmental and security concerns are stimulating global interest in hydrogen power, renewable energy and advanced transportation technologies, but no significant movement away from oil and a carbon-based world economy is expected soon. Matthew Siniawski notes that the field of tribology has been involved in increasing energy efficiency for thousands of years. Scenes and a report from the 28th IAEE Internation Conference held in Taipei, Taiwan.|
2nd Quarter 2005
|Maureen Crandall focusses on the Caspian energy situation and concludes that its energy promise has been overstated and that production from the area will not make a major or lasting contribution to the world’s energy supplies and its energy security. Seth Blumsack and Lester Lave posit that conventional measures of market structure give a misleading picture of the competitiveness of electric power markets. William Edwards discusses the impact of OPEC’s re-cently stated intention to use U.S. inventory levels as a guide in making its production/price decisions; the idea being that the way to keep prices high is to restrain production so that inventories never rise to comfortable levels.
