Energy Costs and Energy Conservation Programs in Colleges and Universities: 1972-73, 1974-75. Higher Education Panel Reports, Number 31.
Atelsek, Frank J.; Gomberg, Irene L.
A survey was initiated at the request of the U.S. Office of Education and the Energy Task Force to: (1) measure the increase in energy expenditures since the OPEC oil embargo of 1973-74; (2) assess changes in energy consumption over a two-year period; and (3) examine some of the specific conservation practices of higher education institutions. Each college respondent was asked to indicate, for each of the two survey years: (1) the amount of each type of fuel consumed and the total cost; (2) the institution's involvement in three stages of energy conservation; and (3) selected institutional experiences during the period of the oil embargo. Respondents were asked to report only the amounts of fuel used to maintain buildings and facilities, and to exclude transportation fuel needs. The results are presented in detailed statistical tables and analyzed in the aggregate. (Author/MSE)
