Since energy development is a key ingredient of material well-being and economic development, societies give high priority to planning for secure energy supplies. But the feasibility and desirability of future energy supplies depend on many uncertain variables such as the future price of different energy carriers, their local and regional availability, their impacts on settlements and society, their effect on environment quality, and the availability of land and water for energy production. The better we can estimate these future variables, the more secure will be our future energy supplies.
