Title: Community systems program

Abstract

The Community Systems Program of DOE through research, development, and demonstration will help communities develop and put into practice effective energy-conservation programs. To do this, the Program develops and demonstrates approaches to community energy conservation that: combine use of the energy resources available within a community, reducing reliance on external and scarce fuels; increase the use of fuel-efficient energy systems in supplyng utility services; substitute energy systems that use non-scarce fuels for those that consume oil and natural gas; and reduce the end-use demand for energy through planning and development practices. A community is described here as any complex of buildings and open spaces used by large numbers of people and connected by networks for moving the people as well as messages, goods, and services. Before energy conservation in communities can have a national impact, comprehensive energy management must become an integral part of community processes. The Community Systems Program is organized into three components--Systems Engineering Products, Planning and Development Products, and Implementing Mechanisms Products. The activities within each program element are presented in Section 2 followed by a discussion of current site-specific prototype application projects (grid-connected systems, coal-using systems, district heating and cooling, heat pump systems, power plant retrofit,more » site design applications, subsystems development case studies, general development planning applications, and comprehensive community energy management pilot projects) in Section 3. Program management, organizational responsibilities, and budget are summarized in Section 4. The current program activities and significant milestones are described in Section 5. A list of publications resulting from Community Systems Programs efforts is pesented in Section 6.« less
