Overview of U. S. Department of Energy Program in Industrial Energy Conservation Technology Development
MetadataShow full item record
The primary responsibility for Federal industrial energy conservation is in the Office of Industrial Programs which reports to the Assistant Secretary for Conservation and Solar Energy. The objectives of the Federal program are to: achieve maximum implementation of existing and new energy conservation technologies; substitute, where possible, abundant fuels for scarce fuels; and minimize energy loss in waste streams. The basic strategy is cost-shared research, development, and demonstration leading to commercialization of energy-efficient technology. Considerations for project selection are: energy savings, acceleration of implementation, level of private effort, benefits to industry, cost-sharing, and degree of risk. Projected industry savings of the current program are 1.5 Quads by 1985 and 5.5 Quads by 2000.
