Environmental Impact of Energy Development
Studies on environmental impact of energy have been conducted, where the impact of energy development might cause the climate change, ozone depletion to acid rain (Dincer, 1999). Study by Dincer (1999) indicating that energy policy requires a long term perspective which needs a careful planning involving energy security and conservation aspect.
Various framework also have been developed to consider the environment impact for energy development covering renewable and fossil fuel energy (Boehlert and Gill, 2010). There are some study that covering not only environment aspect but also social and economy aspect of renewable energy development (Akella et al., 2009).

Big Picture: After a days with confusion, finally a discovery, which (sometimes) lead to other confusion. However, I begin to be more organize, source such as paper should be read more detail on which conclusion form that paper, is it just explanation or it is a significant discoveries (need to see in deeper perspective than citation count). Hopefully it is good news.
Citation Count: At this moment, total paper 149, a single topic might require 5 paper, while a more complex or (have more researcher) might be 10 paper. This paper need to be organized in better structure. I am thinking to reduce all the paper become 100 something paper, need to separate between grey data. My target paper around 100 and grey data around 20 (well maybe grey data is not that urgent), but number of paper should be reduced.
What is the Direction: Research mean a lot of reading everyday. Do not expect result within a short date. Everyday a conclusion might be different. At this point is about impact of energy development, I am expecting energy as general, not too detail to object (renewable vs fossil fuel). What I am trying to find is the best model that could explain the environment energy relationship, in perspective of short and long term perspective.
