  • The overall mission of the Natural Gas Program is to enhance the Nation`s energy security, environmental quality, and economic strength by displacing oil use in the US and increasing efficient use of natural gas. In support of this are programs that will improve the confidence in the continued availability of a long term gas supply (Resource and Extraction Area); provide more cost-effective and competitive means to use natural gas (Utilization Area); develop improved and less costly means of delivering and storing natural gas (Delivery and Storage Area); and to minimize barriers to efficient market operation, promote cost-effective regulation based onmore » improved environmental assessments, and to assure availability to industry of low-cost waste management and waste minimization technology (Environmental/Regulatory Impact Area).

  • The Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians is located in Lake County in Northern California. Similar to the other five federally recognized Indian Tribes in Lake County participating in this project, Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians members are challenged by generally increasing energy costs and undeveloped local energy resources. Currently, Tribal decision makers lack sufficient information to make informed decisions about potential renewable energy resources. To meet this challenge efficiently, the Tribes have committed to the Lake County Tribal Energy Program, a multi Tribal program to be based at the Robinson Rancheria and including The Elem Indian Colony, Bigmore » Valley Rancheria, Middletown Rancheria, Habematolel Pomo of Upper Lake and the Scotts Valley Pomo Tribe. The mission of this program is to promote Tribal energy efficiency and create employment opportunities and economic opportunities on Tribal Lands through energy resource and energy efficiency development. This program will establish a comprehensive energy strategic plan for the Tribes based on Tribal specific plans that capture economic and environmental benefits while continuing to respect Tribal cultural practices and traditions. The goal is to understand current and future energy consumption and develop both regional and Tribe specific strategic energy plans, including action plans, to clearly identify the energy options for each Tribe.« less
  • The Y-12 Computer-Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) Program is managing the migration of the plant's CIM infrastructure from today's environment to an integrated, highly flexible, and more responsive manufacturing architecture planned for the 1990s. The program is committed to: (1) meeting DOE CIM directives, and (2) improving the manufacturing performance of the Y-12 Plant. The CIM Program charter in Y-12 is to improve manufacturing performance through integrated computer and communication technologies such that the plant's ability to meet its current and future manufacturing objectives is significantly enhanced. To achieve this goal, CIM technologies are being applied in two primary areas: (1) automationmore » of manufacturing processes, and (2) automation of information of information systems. The objectives of the CIM Program are as follows: Meet DOE CIM directives; Reduce product cost; Meet production schedules with minimum contingency costs; Improve product quality via quality assurance at the point of origin; Minimize in-process inventory and improve inventory control; Reduce product lead time; Improve production flexibility.« less
  • In this report the Interagency Working Group on the Physics of the Universe responds to the National Research Council's (NRC) 2002 report, Connecting Quarks with the Cosmos: Eleven Science Questions for the New Century. The Physics of the Universe group examines the status of the Federal government s current investments aimed at answering the eleven questions in the NRC report. Based upon that assessment, the group prioritized the new facilities needed to advance understanding in each of these areas. Consistent with a goal of the President's Management Agenda to manage Federal R&D investments as a portfolio of interconnected activities, thismore » report lays out a plan for exciting discovery at the intersection of physics and astronomy.« less
