Energy Conservation: A Management Report for State and Local Governments and A Technical Guide for State and Local Governments.
Public Technology, Inc., Washington, DC.
This technical guide is part of a packet of tools designed to assist state or local government practitioners in organizing and managing an energy conservation program. It gives information on adapting energy conservation methods to existing public buildings and on designing new public buildings with energy conservation in mind. It also discusses public vehicle fleet management related to energy conservation. Energy conservation in the private sector is covered with material on residential and commercial buildings, public transportation, and electric utilities. Alternate energy sources, such as pyrolysis and methane production from solid waste, are presented, in addition to some case studies in energy conservation. Finally, a management report, written for department heads and mid-level managers, lays out basic steps in administering an energy conservation program. (Author/BB)
