Title: State energy development and demonstration: an evaluation

Abstract

The ways in which state governments have responded to the need for research and development are reviewed, and some models are evaluated for their usefulness to Wisconsin. In some states, energy R and D funds and institutes have been established for the primary purpose of providing the seed money necessary to attract a larger share of Federal dollars. In other states, however, it is the perceived deficiencies in the Federal energy programs, the unfilled gaps on the agendas of specific state research and development needs, that provide the primary impetus for creation of a state energy research and development entity of some sort. Some states are closely identified with specific priority research programs. Wisconsin, a state with severe winters and virtually no indigenous fossil fuel resources, has keyed its energy use strategy to the demand side and is pursuing a vigorous conservation plan. Wisconsin's renewable energy resources are wood, other plant biomass, food processing waste, animal wastes, hydrogen, solar radiation, thermal wastes, water flow, and wind and the present status of development of these resources are briefly described. Wisconsin's energy research and development needs and the adequacy of these programs are examined. For determining what options might be applied tomore » Wisconsin's needs, programs in other states were examined. Detailed information on the energy research and development programs in North Carolina, Kentucky, Colorado, California, Minnesota, Ohio, Illinois, New Mexico, Montana, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, South Carolina, New York, Hawaii, and Texas are given in Appendix III.« less
