History of Making Energy Policy
System dynamics has played a noteworthy role in the making of energy policy for many states, provinces, corporations, and countries.  This work has covered the spectrum from predictive forecasting, to strategic planning, to assessing policy options, to negotiating policy, to shaping policy, to defending policy, to swaying policy.  While The FOSSIL1 model appears to have begun this process, the ENERGY 2020 model continues to influence the policy process in functional, but possibly ambiguous ways.
