Sustainable and Efficient Economic Development (SEED) looks at the basic principles and possibilities for sustainable and efficient economic development in three topics. These are energy markets, regional development and sound economic pathways for developing countries.

Sustainability has many dimensions and definitions but current economic development clearly emphasizes the role of economic dimensions in sustainable development. Unless economic processes are based on sound and cost-effective principles no possibilities for sustainability in the terms of other dimensions are possible.
