The Three Pillars of Sustainability. The three pillars of sustainability are a powerful tool for defining the complete sustainability problem. This consists of at least the economic, social, and environmental pillars. If any one pillar is weak then the system as a whole is unsustainable. and environmentally sound production and distribution of energy for the future.” This Overview sets forth the National Energy Policy Development (NEPD) Group’s find­ ings and key recommendations for a Na­ tional Energy Policy.

Draftsmen on Environmentally Sound Management of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Resources (the Handbook). 1 This Guide, as the Handbook, is written in response to needs expressed, particularly by energy efficiency and renewable energy project initiators, government officials.

This implies that when discussing transfer of technologies, the human resource development and local capacity-building aspects of technology choices, including gender-relevant aspects, should also be addressed. Environmentally sound technologies should be compatible with nationally determined socio-economic, cultural and environmental priorities.

In order to promote energy for sustainable development there is a need for favourable access to and transfer of environmentally sound technologies, in particular to developing countries, through supportive measures that promote technology cooperation and that should enable the transfer of necessary technological know-how and the building up of.
