Energy accounting: sources of ambiguity. Energy analysis: the troublesome birth of a new domain of knowledge. The aggregation of energy flows at the national level. The proper use of semantic and formal categories in energy accounting. Energy flows under human control: energy input, power capacity and human labour. Cutting through the confusion in net energy analysis. In search of a ricer, integrated and multi-scale accounting protocol. Concepts, ideas and representations underlying the multi.scale integrated accounting of society's energy metabolism. Dual accounting of energy flows and the characterization of the metabolic pattern across hierarchical levels. Study the feasibility of the metabolic constraints on the metabolic pattern of modern societies. Using MuSIASEM for studying scenarios based on alternatives to fossil energy
The vast majority of the countries of the world are now facing an imminent energy crisis. This text outlines an innovative approach capable of characterising the quality of alternative energy sources in relation to both environmental constraints and socio-economic requirements
