ACHIEVING ENERGY INDEPENDENCE

Actions are suggested that the government should take in order to effectively meet the nation's energy needs without compromising basic objectieves for the security of the U.S. and its allies, jeopardizing a sound domestic and international economy, or endangering the environment. A program to achieve independence must contain certain elements which include the development of practical storage capacity, reserve production capacity and emergency conservation measures to weather disruption of input supply without undue economic consequences. The program must provide for continuing and increasing energy conservation measures that will reduce demand for energy, as well as for research and development to improve efficiency in energy use. Provision must also be made for the improvement of the domestic supply of oil, gas, coal and uranium and of synthetic oil and gas from oil shale and coal.
