ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN NEW YORK CITY: PHASE I. PATTERNS AND OPPORTUNITIES

This report is a compilation and analysis of actual energy consumption and cost data for the city of New York in 1979. It also identifies the minimum potential for reducing the city's energy consumption through efficiency improvements. The report provides a framework for the development of rational city energy policies and programs and establishes a baseline for analysis of the probable impacts of future national and regional energy decisions. The report describes for the first time all primary energy coming into the city: oil, natural gas, hydro, nuclear, and coal. The data are organized by the economic sectors; residential, commercial, industrial, transportation, and public sectors. Within each economic sector, the report details consumption of its component energy sources: oil, natural gas, electricity, steam, and coal. The energy sources are analyzed by end-uses, such as space heating and cooling, water heating, lighting, and major electric appliances.
