The Energy Conservation Program for Schools and Hospitals Can Be More Effective. Report to the Congress of the United States by the Comptroller General.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
The Schools and Hospital Program, funded through the National Energy Conservation Policy Act, is not an effective use of federal monies when compared to other Department of Energy (DOE) conservation programs. It is among the highest in cost, yet among the lowest in yielding energy savings. This report identifies changes which could increase overall energy savings without increasing program funding. It also discusses improvements needed in DOE's management of the program. Schools and hospitals should be able to reduce their energy use by up to 30 percent. (Author/WB)
