The object of the Crosscut Studies of the Transport of Energy Materials is to determine the degree in which the transportation system will be able to accommodate the goals of Project Independence, the degree in which transportation may be a constraint on the attainment of these goals and the effectiveness of various governmental policies in lifting any constraints. The transport of materials such as coal, gas, petroleum and products from the source to intermediate processing and thence to the end use consumer cuts across the development of new energy sources and the change in the manner of use of old energy sources. Volume one is an analysis of requirements and constraints on the transport of energy materials, and concludes with a discussion on government policy options. Volume two presents the methodology used to develop the data input to the Project Independence Supply and Demand Balancing Model and to document those inputs.
