Understanding the National Energy Dilemma.
Georgetown Univ., Washington, DC. Center for Strategic and International Studies.
This graphic representation of our energy dilemma provides government officials, industry, and general public with an understanding of the broad problems and complexity of our energy crisis. An energy display system projects effects of energy policies on our domestic energy situation. This display contains sheets indicating total energy flow patterns. Cross plots provide specific information on each item. Data are based on 1950, 1960, and 1970 figures with projections for 1980 and 1990. To understand the energy display system, accompanying fold-outs with specific text descriptions are provided. Percentages of residual and commercial, industrial, non-energy, transportation, electrical energy generation, coal/gas, oil/gas, and coal/oil uses are presented. Hydroelectric, geothermal, nuclear, gas (imports), gas (domestic), coal, oil (imports), shale, and oil (domestic) energy sources are displayed in percentages in flow patterns. Energy units are one million barrels per day of oil equivalent. Fold-outs consist of total energy flow patterns (1950, 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990); cross plots of "efficiency,""end uses,""form of use,""supply/demand charts"--1960-1985, 1990-2050: charts of "guidance" required and demand projections. Appended material contains energy references and conversion tables. (BP)
