The newsletter is quarterly. Contributions are welcomed. Feel free to use the information you find in Sustainable Energy News.

Annual subscription rate: US$ 15 Sustainable Energy News will be distributed free of charge to NGOs as long as possible.

Supported by: Forum for Energy and Development.

The coming international events, from the Social Summit to the European Energy Market, mark an increased international activity, that is covered by a number of articles in this issue. These are followed by descriptions of some new developments in the lNforSE campaign on sustainable energy for social development that will link NGO energy activities with the UN summits.

Biofuel for transportation is a rapidly growing way of using renewable energy, and is also the theme of two articles in this issue on experience with alcohol and rape seed oil for transportation.

Annexed to this issue is the Sustainable Energy Contact List (excl. Europe), the first attempt at a worldwide list of energy NGOs.
