Energy Conservation: An Expanding Program Needing More Direction. Report to the Secretary of Energy by the U.S. General Accounting Office.
General Accounting Office, Washington, DC.
The United States Department of Energy (DOE) has not succeeded in establishing overall energy conservation goals or in developing and implementing a comprehensive, coordinated national energy conservation plan. These failures continue to perpetuate confusion over how much energy conservation is needed, how well the country is conserving energy, and what additional steps need to be taken in order to realize conservation's potential contribution towards solving national energy problems. The opportunity to develop an aggressive and effective energy conservation strategy should not be allowed to slip away. Accordingly, this report presents recommendations for developing a long-range national energy policy, establishing conservation goals, and formulating a comprehensive national conservation plan.
