Item #d90may66

The U.S. Department of Energy has published an interim report for public comment on its national energy strategy, which has been under development since early 1989. Energy Secretary James Watkins announced that the report is not a first draft of the strategy, but consists largely of input gathered at a series of public hearings around the country. Energy efficiency and renewable energy sources will be emphasized in the final plan.

Also released for public comment are five "white papers" prepared by DOE's national laboratories which address topics important to the strategy: energy efficiency, renewable energy, global climate change, and technology transfer. They are independent works of the laboratories and do not represent DOE policy, but rather provide insight for evaluating divergent views on the topics.

For details on ordering reports and submitting comments see REPORTS/DOE DOCUMENTS, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--May 1990. DOE also recently announced a series of initiatives to increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources; see J. Air & Waste Mgmt., pp. 364-365, Mar. 1990.
