ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN MANUFACTURING AND THE MINNESOTA ECONOMY

This report reviews the relative importance of manufacturing to the Minnesota economy. It compares energy requirements with dollar value-added and employment in manufacturing. Fuel cost and fuel intensities of various manufacturers are also derived in order to obtain an indication of the effect of fuel scarcities on manufacturing output and employment. Projections of fuel requirements are made based on alternative growth rates of employment, labor productivity, and value-added. Recommendations are made on energy conservation to insure that adequate supplies of energy are available for full employment through 1980.
