ECP (Environmental Conservation Project) Report, No. 5, March 1976. Planning for Energy Conservation.
Environmental Law Inst., Washington, DC.
The culmination of the Environmental Law Institute's Energy Conservation Project will be a series of handbooks addressed to state and local officials, legislators, and interested citizens setting out suggested strategies for conserving energy. This issue of the ECP Report publishes the first of a series of draft chapters from these handbooks - a chapter on land use planning for energy conservation by Corbin Crews Harwood from her book, LAND USE AND ENERGY CONSERVATION. This chapter describes how plans designed to promote energy-efficient land use can be established at the state, regional, and local levels; and, briefly outlines guidelines for drafting energy-efficient comprehensive plans. Specific energy-saving strategies are discussed in the context of comprehensive planning. Included in the appendix are: excerpts from the Energy Conservation and Transportation Goals and Policies adopted by the Lincoln, Nebraska, City Council and the Lancaster County, Nebraska, Board of Commissioners; the final guidelines issued by the Federal Energy Administration for the preparation of state energy conservation feasibility reports; a review of the federal government's problems and prospects related to the procurement of recycled goods; and an article describing energy conservation through the lowering of transit crime.
