Abstract

How can countries in Asia avoid the pitfalls faced by the United States, with its oil problems? This chapter argues that policy-makers have a wide variety of options available to them, drawing mostly on techniques promoted (but seldom implemented) in the United States and Europe to help reduce dependence on foreign sources of oil. Starting with an evaluation of “demand- side” options before moving to “supply-side” options, it will then focus indepth on the benefits of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) before offering general conclusions about energy policy.
