The Commission on Science and Technology for Development decided at its second session to consider energy systems as a possible area for its future work, and in this regard requested UNCTAD to submit to the third session of the Commission an issues note on the identification of scientific and technological aspects of sustainable energy systems. To this end, the Secretariat organized an informal meeting in Geneva, held on 24 and 25 October 1996. This note highlights the main elements of the discussion at this meeting. It covers such areas as making alternative energy sources competitive and how to increase the share of alternative sources of energy in energy systems. The message in the report is that the application of sustainable energy systems is a matter of global concern and is the responsibility of all countries. Considering that the use of energy is one of the main factors contributing to global environmental degradation, the adoption and application of environmentally sound technologies require concerted action on the part of the entire global community. The report outlines possible strategies on how to pursue the options available
