A comprehensive description of the energy supply and demand pattern in the Northeastern U.S. in 1972 is presented. The region covers New England (Region I), New York (Region II), Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and District of Columbia (Region III). The Reference Energy Systems (RES) defined in this report describe major components in the energy system, specifying resource consumptions, fuel transportation, conversion processes, and end use for each region. Section II discusses the RES methodology and the results derived. Sections III and IV describe the primary sources of information and methods used to estimate various end uses of energy in the residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation sectors. These end use demands specified by sector and fuel type are necessary input data to construct the Reference Energy Systems. Section VII analyzes the fuel consumption and energy generated by the electric utility sector in the region. Section VIII provides data on the regional energy supply systems. Included in Appendix A is a set of Fuel Mix Tables that are designed for future energy demand projections. Appendix B contains the regional socio-economic data used in the study. Appendix C displays the conversion factors and energy equivalents of various fuel types.
