Title: National power survey: energy conservation. The report and recommendations of the Technical Advisory Committee on Conservation of Energy

Abstract

In examining energy conservation possibilities (particularly with respect to electric power), these three areas are focused on: exsting practices and standards affecting energy use; energy conservation through the use of new or improved technology; and environmental aspects of energy conservation. The mechanics of energy conservation opportunities are discussed, including consideration of policy implications. Where possible, the amount of energy that could be saved by using specific conservation measures is estimated. The Federal Power Commission is urged to consider effective and efficient use of energy as important an issue as the maintenance of a reliable and adequate supply of energy. Recommendations are made concerning pricing policy for energy, with emphasis on electric power rates. Other suggestions for conservation cover government policies and improved efficiency in the production, conversion, and use of energy, including recommendations on power pool operations, energy storage systems, the use of heat pumps and rail transport, total energy systems, recycling of materials, research on nuclear reactors, and utilization of solar heating. Recommendations on environmental aspects of energy conservation options take into account the shift from petroleum hydrocarbons to coal and nuclear fuels. (BYB)
