Energy and Education: Planning for Higher Prices and Potential Shortages.
Petrock, Edith M.; Bauman, Paul C.
This document provides information and suggestions to enable education officials to better control rising energy costs and to plan appropriate reactions to energy supply disruptions. Information is also provided on major changes in federal policies addressing energy shortages and the implications of these policies for state and local jurisdictions. The major focus of the document is on information generally not available in current energy plans: revised federal policies, characteristics of state energy contingency documents, planning considerations, fuel characteristics, and energy supply management techniques. Also included are the conclusions and recommendations made by the State Energy and Education Task Force. An annotated bibliography lists sources of information for monitoring energy-related data, a sampling of state-developed energy conservation and emergency plans, and other related references.
