In order to assist two-year college educators in increasing their participation in energy-related activities, this publication provides guidelines for planning energy projects and descriptions of model energy programs. The steps outlined for program planning include the assessment of area energy resources, the identification of local energy-related training needs and job prospects, and the determination of whether new programs are needed or whether energy-related topics should be incorporated into existing programs. The employment and training implications of the National Energy Act are outlined prior to a discussion of the process of identifying funding sources and a checklist of several important requirements for successful program planning and development. Descriptions of 21 externally funded, energy-related activities undertaken by two-year colleges conclude the report. These activities focus on alcohol fuels, the training of energy technicians in coal-fired electrical generation, coal miner training, community education and information dissemination on energy issues, faculty development, energy conservation, geothermal energy, solar energy, and windmill generators. Each program description includes the dollar amount awarded, the name of a contact person and the funding agency, and an outline of activities. (JP)
