Luncheon and Lecture: Least-Cost Energy for Developing Countries


Amory B. Lovins, Director of Research at Rocky Mountains Institute in Colorado, is in Hawaii with Mrs. Lovins for a series of lectures on energy, and will be speaking at the East-West Center on November 22 at a luncheon lecture. The topic of his speech will be "Least-Cost Energy for Developing Countries."

Known as the prophets of oil crises, nuclear proliferation problems and environ-mental and climatic perils, they were once controversial in their approach, but are now considered among the western world's most influential energy thinkers. Their focus is on things like conservation, increased efficiency and use of natural renewable resources. They feel that that may be the only road to a politically, technologically and economically sane energy policy.

Sponsored by the Coral Industries Chair of Renewable Energy Resources, Hawaii Natural Energy Institute and the Hawaii State Dept. of Planning and Economic Development, the Nov. 22nd luncheon-lecture will be held in the

East-West Garden Room. It will begin with no-host cocktails at 11:30 followed by lunch at 12:00. The cost of the lunch will be $9.00 for Friends of the East-West Center, and $10.00 for others. The number to call for reservations is 944-7195. There is a November 15 deadline.


At 2:30 p.m. on November 29, "Lovins on the Soft Path," a film about some of their ideas, will be shown at Burns Hall at the East-West Center. This film won the "Best of Category" (energy) award at the American and Audubon Film Festival in 1982. Admission is free.
