Title: National power survey task force report: energy conversion research technical advisory committee on research and development. [Evaluation of more than 40 technologies]

Abstract

More than 40 technologies related to energy conversion were evaluated to determine how well their development might be expected to: (1) optimize use of fuel resources; (2) minimize environmental impacts; (3) improve safety and reliability; and (4) improve economics. These technologies were grouped according to time period of possible use and by type; then they were ranked in four categories of priority for R and D support. The technologies discussed include fossil-fuel technologies, nuclear technology, solar energy, geothermal energy, wind power, tidal power, solar sea power plants, energy conversion cycles and equipment, substitute fuels, by-product applications, and energy storage.
