TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT OF PRODUCTIVE CONSERVATION IN URBAN TRANSPORTATION. PROJECT DESCRIPTION FOR FISCAL YEARS 1980, 1981

An investigation of the potential environmental, health, and safety impacts of various alternative productive conservation strategies is presented. The technology assessment identifies internally consistent (mutually reinforcing policy or technology elements following a specific theme) productive conservation strategies which will aid in the reduction of the US dependence on petroleum in urban transportation; compares analytically the energy savings and environmental impacts of the various productive conservation strategies; and analyzes the issues and the barriers which may constrain these productive conservation strategies from becoming effective. Each strategy is discussed. Major tasks that occur during 4 phases are discussed, e.g., data collection, model assembly, impact criteria; in-place policy analysis; analysis of alternative strategies; and documentation.
