Abstract
Since the oil embargo and the massive increase in oil prices much attention has been directed to alternative or new energy sources. Electricity now accounts for only 10 per cent of energy end-use, but its share is expected to rise to more than 25 per cent by the year 2000 - a 150 per cent increase in its share and more than a 600 per cent increase in its consumption. Such a gargantuan commitment to electricity will confront the utilities and the public with many problems.
