Title: Python import replacement

Abstract

SmartImport.py is a Python source-code file that implements a replacement for the standard Python module importer. The code is derived from knee.py, a file in the standard Python diestribution , and adds functionality to improve the performance of Python module imports in massively parallel contexts.

  • The scope of the study includes a broad screening assessment of the current petroleum consumption in the country, and the ability of selected technologies to reduce it during a crisis. In performing the study, the authors have relied upon their prior experience, published information, and telephone inquiries with industry participants and governmental agencies. The results are presented in the following sections of the report: Section III identifies the technologies which could be deployed during a crisis; Sections IV through VII analyze the oil replacement potential in the electric utility, residential/commercial, industrial, and transportation sectors, respectively; Section VIII analyzes the potentialmore » for increasing the domestic petroleum supply; Section IX analyzes the availability of common resources for deploying the selected technologies and identifies the overall technical potential for replacing oil during a crisis.« less
  • The report examines the changes that have taken place in world oil markets and the U.S. economy since 1984 and provides revised estimates of the technical oil replacement potential that might be attained in the event of a severe and long lasting cutoff of imported oil. The analysis focuses on technologies that are commercially available today or will be within the next 5 years and that are among the most cost-effective methods for replacing oil use in applicable sectors. It also considers the economic impacts of adopting an aggressive oil replacement strategy in a severe oil emergency. The report presentsmore » a variety of policy options that could help accelerate the adoption of oil replacement technologies in preparation for, or in response to, a severe supply disruption, or as part of a long-term national policy to reduce import vulnerability. The report's conclusion that U.S. capability to replace lost oil imports is shrinking should be sobering to those who believe that there are quick and easy technological solutions, or that market forces alone will be sufficient to overcome the substantial economic and social dislocations that could result from a prolonged major oil disruption.« less

  • This report responds to a request by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations for an analysis of the US oil replacement capability in the event of an oil supply shortfall of indefinite duration. The assessment complements several other OTA reports related to energy efficiency and oil replacement. The report analyzes energy supply and demand technologies which can replace large amounts of oil within 5 years after the onset of a major oil supply shortfall, occurring within the next few years and accompanied by a large and enduring increase in oil prices. Emphasis is placed on those technologies that are commerciallymore » available now or are likely to be commercial by 1985, and, within this group, attention is given to the least cost alternatives to oil. In addition, the report analyzes the macroeconomic effects of an oil shortfall and how these effects could be influenced by different rates of investment in the oil replacement technologies. 49 figures, 40 tables.« less
