  • County governments can develop energy management policies and renewable energy resources, which are derived, directly or indirectly, from the sun's energy. They can also provide incentives for county residents to develop these resources. This guidebook discusses the relations between energy costs, energy supply, and the economic well-being of the community. It gives examples of local governments that have integrated energy considerations into their economic development plans, communities already benefiting from a range or renewable technology projects, and positive steps taken to remove institutional barriers and ensure solar access. The role that renewable energy can play in the comprehensive energy-planning processmore » is defined. The final chapter gives an overview of local and state technical resources and funds and Federal programs that local governments can employ to develop energy projects. 145 references, 14 figures, 13 tables.« less
  • History and politics play major roles in China's effort to find and develop energy supplies and to integrate into the world economy. Early optimistic decisions to be self-reliant, however, have given way to the realization that the complex geological and distant energy resources will require technology that neither the survivors of the Cultural Revolution nor the economic and political systems can provide. Chinese leaders now recognize that foreign participation is essential, and are preparing for joint ventures that could develop enough momentum to withstand political and international differences. 1 figure, 2 tables.

  • An attempt is made to analyze the energy policy of the People's Republic of China with particular reference to oil. Other major sources of energy, such as coal, electricity, and natural gas, have also been referred to insofar as deemed necessary to place the role of oil in the general perspective of China's energy consumption pattern. Dr. Park notes that little more than 10 percent of China's energy requirements have been met by oil; also that even a developing country like India has six times as many automobiles per capita as China. The study traces recent developments, from the breakmore » with the Soviet Union beginning in 1960 and its effect upon technical assistance and supplies to China, through the discovery, locations both onshore and offshore, production, and export of Chinese oil. Chinese oil prices have increased and distant transport will be expensive so long as no port in China can accommodate more than a 50,000-ton tanker. The implications of Chinese energy policy for the Soviet Union, the United States, Japan, and other countries are examined in the light of international relations and the political motivations of Peking. An extensive bibliography is presented. (MCW)« less
  • The FRESA computer program, Version 2.5, provides an easy way to collect and process building and facility data to indicate opportunities for renewable energy applications in federal facilities and buildings. The purpose of this analytic tool is to focus feasibility study efforts on those applications most likely to prove cost-effective. The program is a supplement to energy and water conservation audits, which must be completed for all federal buildings and will flag renewable energy opportunities by facilitating the evaluation and ranking process. FRESA results alone are generally not sufficient to establish project feasibility. The FRESA User's Manual provides instruction onmore » getting started; an overview of the FRESA program structure; an explanation of the screening process; detailed information on using the functions of Facility/Building Info, Building/Facility Analysis, Input/Output, and Weather Data or Adding a Zip Code; troubleshooting; and archiving data. Appendices include Algorithms Used in FRESA Prescreening, Excel Spreadsheets for FRESA Inputs, Other Useful Information, and Acronyms and Abbreviations.« less
