To examine the impact of Federal energy policies on the structure and growth of urban areas, a comprehensive evaluation instrument consisting of a set of urban analysis models is needed. Existing and proposed Federal policies will affect the distribution and marketing of energy, the production and distribution of energy within urban areas, the introduction of new technologies, conservation, and the price of energy. Such changes are already affecting housing, transportation, the urban tax base, and the cost of urban services. This research proposal constructs a comprehensive evaluation instrument from existing models. An Energy flows model calculates production, employment, and income change. Housing and Transport models use various forms of regression analysis to study the impact of energy policies on these segments of the economy. Inputs from the Energyflows and Housing models are used to evaluate changes in the fiscal conditions of urban governments through a Government model. These changes, along with the ones produced by Housing and Transport, are brought together in the Landuse model. The source of each model, modifications necessary for its use in the comprehensive evaluation, and the costs of these modifications are all discussed. The proposal contains tables, mathematical discussions, technical notes, a literature review, a bibliography, and appendices.
