  • The 20th Annual conference on Fossil Energy Materials was held in Knoxville, Tennessee, on June 12 through June 14, 2006. The meeting was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy through the Advanced Research Materials Program (ARM). The objective of the ARM Program is to conduct research and development on materials for longer-term fossil energy applications, as well as for generic needs of various fossil fuel technologies.
  • Natural gas is an abundant, clean-burning fuel considered universally to be an important energy source. As the Clinton administration sets its energy policy agenda, the impact of natural gas on this nation`s future energy mix has become an important question. What role will natural gas play in the National Energy Policy? What are the environmental considerations surrounding an increased use of this fuel? How will natural gas influence the electric utility future? And how will it affect the transportation sector? These and many other issues were addressed at the Annual Illinois Energy Conference. The members of the planning committee weremore » brought together for a full-day session where they were asked to assess the economic and political impacts of an enhanced role for natural gas in this country`s energy future. The planning committee identified several major issues: role of natural gas in the National Energy Policy; impacts of environmental legislation on natural gas; role of natural gas in electric power generation; and outlook for natural gas in the transportation sector. The proceedings contain 19 papers.« less

  • Part I of the hearing record covers testimony relating to the extension of antitrust defense availability to the International Energy Agency (IEA); an authorization request by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to comply with pipeline safety regulations; and the administration's reluctance to promote gasohol use in federal vehicles. The first day's hearing included discussion of H.R. 2166, which extended the IEA authority by amending the Energy Policy and Conservation Act, and the testimony of four witnesses representing federal agencies involved in international affairs. On the second day, three DOT witnesses described pipeline-safety programs, enforcement, and procedures, with emphasis on themore » transport of liquefied natural gas. On the third day, nine witnesses representing gasohol-producing states, the US Army Equipment Research and Development Command, federal fleet services, and DOE examined the appropriateness and compliance record of Executive Order 12261 mandating gasohol for federally owned or leased vehicles. At issue was the need to convert Midwest grains to fuel at a time when oil is plentiful, the performance of alcohol fuels, and the administration's preference for working through the marketplace. Additional material submitted for the record follows each day's testimony. (DCK)« less
