China and Taiwan Energy Analyses - Presentations & Papers

As a part of NPEC's project, "40 Years Hence: Implementing Title V of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Act of 1978," experts were commissioned to assess the economic and environmental efficacy of alternatives to introducing or expanding nuclear power in a number of developing countries. Below are the energy studies on China and Taiwan.

Studies on Saudi Arabia and Iran, as well as analyses of U.S. energy cooperation spending and the feasability of an Energy Peace Corps, program called for in Section 502 of Title V, are also available.
