Item #d92dec143

"The Bridge to Clean Energy," C. Flavin, World Watch, 10-18, July-Aug. 1992.

The climate treaty, signed at the Earth Summit, may provide the natural gas industry an opportunity to expand its market share because new technologies produce 30%-60% less CO2 than the same amount of energy derived from oil or coal. The industry has been seeking new allies among leaders in the solar and energy efficiency industries and environmentalists, leading to "open warfare" in the fossil fuel lobby.

Item #d92dec144

"Electricity for Increasing Energy Efficiency," P. Jaret, EPRI J., 4-15, Apr.-May 1992. Electricity offers unmatched flexibility and efficiency at point of use. For a growing list of applications, electricity requires less primary fuel to accomplish tasks than direct use of fossil fuels.

Item #d92dec145

"From Murky Politics, A Bright Idea," D. Denniston, World Watch, 36-37, July-Aug. 1992. EPA's "Green Lights" program has ingeniously circumvented John Sununu's opposition to higher energy efficiency standards in the National Energy Strategy by promoting the voluntary use of energy efficient lighting. More than 500 members, including 100 of the nations 1000 largest companies, have committed almost 3% of the workspace to lighting upgrades.
