This report assesses Connecticut's energy supply/demand outlook 1975 through 1994. The Connecticut Energy Advisory Board considered projected demands, including electric utility requirements, and measured them against projected fuel supplies to identify possible future imbalances. This report recommends possible energy-conservation actions that could be taken in each of the main energy-consuming sectors-residential, commercial industrial, transportation and electric utilities; and it examines several energy-related issues that cut across end-user lines, specifically those with impact on either energy demand or supply. Five steps were followed in analyzing the energy problem: (1) analysis of Connecticut's historical demand for energy, and projection of this demand through 1994; (2) analysis of the historical energy supply to Connecticut and projection through 1994; (3) measurement of the possible imbalances between the supply and demand; (4) identification of the options to address these imbalances; and (5) development and presentation of recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly. Appendices are included providing the backup data, descriptions of the methodologies, and detailed policy analysis that lie behind the report. An analysis of the major policy recommendations describes how the proposed policy would work, estimates the energy savings that could be realized from its adoption and use, and evaluates the economic, social, and environmental impacts that could be reasonably expected.
