dc.description.abstractOver two-thirds of the fuel energy that utilities pay for is lost by the time it reaches the consumer. Improvements in power plant efficiencies and reduction of system losses represent a potential for savings that is equivalent to, or possibly greater than, the savings that can be achieved through conservation and load management. Recent rate cases before the Public Utility Commission of Texas and articles in the press have emphasized savings on demand-side options, and energy efficiency plans and studies in recent years have reflected this emphasis. As a result, efficiency has come to be synonymous with conservation. This paper discusses the aspects of energy efficiency which serve to enhance power plant efficiencies or reduce system losses. It also compares the plans submitted in 1984 and 1985 and discusses possible areas in which utilities can improve their supply-side energy efficiency planning.en
