These is a list references for the two linked posts on the EROEI of electricity supply and the EROEI of electricity balancing.

I would really appreciate it if readers could post links to any omissions or to any new papers that I miss in order to improve the statistical validity of the trajectory graph. In particular this list is very short on published papers on EROEI, net energy, energy payback time, etc for gas- and coal-fired generation as well as tidal and wave power.

Low-energy bulbsLow-energy light bulbs split the nation down the middle. Half of us believe that these bulbs will save energy, bring down our energy bills, and reduce carbon emissions. The other half believe that there are all sorts of things that haven’t been considered, and that if we look at the whole picture then the […]

The setting of boundaries is hugely important in calculating EROEI. Where do you stop with bringing in other costs? If it’s not on the financial balance sheet can you ignore it? I would say no – if it has an effect, it goes in. That seems to be a limitation of input-output analyses. Where do […]

The range of wind EROEI I found during my literature review for the table on page 61 of the Offshore Valuation is staggeringly large. Much larger in fact than any of the other technologies included. It demands consideration of why this might be.There are two (or three) categories of answer to this question. Firstly there […]
