The percentage of U.S. energy devoted to producing electricity increased from 25 percent in 1970 to 30 percent in 1980 and is predicted to continue to grow with coal and nuclear power being the main energy sources in 2000 when natural oil and gas will no longer be used for power. Coal production will have to triple to 2 billion tons/year by 2000; productivity and transportation have been examined with the conclusion that their improvement will be difficult but possible.
