A framework of accounts used in the metropolitan energy balance is presented for each of the following headings: resource type, fuel type, method of conversion, energy use, and demand sector. A table by fuel type of non-renewable and renewable primary energy resources used in the metropolitan Washington area is presented. Energy use data are presented in three demand sectors: (1) commercial, industrial, and institutional, (2) residential, and (3) transportation. Energy use data are presented by fuel type and demand sector using the following accounts: space heat, water heat, air conditioning, process, ground passenger transportation, ground freight transportation and air transportation. A flow chart is presented showing how a metropolitan energy resources model is integrated into a metropolitan framework model used for forecasting the effects of alternative metropolitan management strategies over a specified planning period.
