This booklet is anxious with significant present debates in public coverage in all prosperous societies. One is the common challenge with the standard of the average environment-the caliber of air, water, land, and desolate tract areas-which has expressed itself within the passage and implementation in recent times of quite a few environmental legislation and laws. A moment debate matters the adequacy of power assets to fulfill the necessities of a starting to be economic system. The requirement that industries needs to hamper environmental toxins results in elevated charges of creation and, in flip, to better costs, falling output in these industries, and decreased employment and source of revenue within the area the place such industries can be found. there is, whilst, progress in indus­ attempts that provide toxins abatement gear and prone in these or different areas. over the years, the wellbeing and fitness and monetary merits of upper envi­ ronmental caliber convey themselves in altering styles of consumption.

Another area that has not been addressed in this paper is the distributional income implications of energy development. It is quite likely that the energy developments over two or three decades could affect different individuals and regions quite differently. This limitation must be kept in mind, particularly if our exercise had considered different regions of the country. Indeed, the major utility of SEAS is as an integrated strategic screening device of major proposed policies, whose comprehensive effects on the economy-energy-environment milieu can be assessed.

Many of these models have also been optimized by mathematical programming techniques (Hoffman [1972]; Dean et al. [1973]; Muller [1978]). J. LESUIS, F. MULLER, AND P. NIJKAMP energy-economic problems. This approach has the additional advantage in that environmental problems can also be integrated in a direct way, as we will see later. 1) x= Xi+f where x vector of gross production levels X matrix of intermediate deliveries f final demand vector unit vector. 2) with A the matrix of technical coefficients (A = XX-I; X being the diagonal matrix of x).
