This paper is an attempt to quantify the potential energy savings from a comprehensive national program of energy conservation. Included are measures to reduce oil consumption in transportation, freight movement, resource recovery, appliances and home standards, industry and electric utilities and the computed figures of potential energy savings for each of the strategies proposed. The end result is a reduction in energy consumption in the period 1980 to 1985 of approximately 6 million barrels a day--the same amount as our current imports. This paper demonstrates that by using available resources more efficiently, the U.S. standard of living need not be sacrified, although a change in the indices of that standard may be indicated.
