Title: Testimony of Ms. Omi Walden, Assistant Secretary for Conservation and Solar Applications, FY 1980 authorization hearings

Abstract

The overall goal of the Office of Conservation and Solar Applications is to reduce the nation's dependence on petroleum-based fuels. This will be accomplished by reducing waste in the way the Nation uses energy; by providing more energy-efficient technologies and practices for the end-use sectors; and by encouraging a transition to more abundant fuels, especially renewable energy sources such as solar energy. Ms. Walden then reviewed her efforts since she joined the DOE. The major programs for which funds are requested for FY 1980 are discussed. The objectives of the Office of Buildings and Community Systems are summarized and a funding request of $86 million for 1980 is indicated. The objectives and proposed activities of the other major programs are given, with funding requested as follows: Industrial Energy Conservation Program, $42 million; Transportation Programs, $99 million; Office of State and Local Programs, $316 million; Appropriate Technology Small Grants Program, $8.5 million; Office of Solar Applications, $156 million. Ms. Walden also cites the funding requests for subprograms in the budget discussion. (MCW)
