Towards a Sustainable Energy Economy – The Role of Palm
Ian L. Halsall

This paper reviews the factors which affect the palm industry's role in the world energy economy. Currently palm's role as a renewable fuel is small, but if all the world's palm oil, and palm biomass by-product, were to be used asfuel, then the annual energy supply would be 7.31 exajoules - more than most country's requirements. Alternatives are evaluated, as are social issues.
