In accordance with section 374 of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), Pub. L. 94-163, the Federal Energy Administration (FEA) proposed industrial energy efficiency improvement targets for the ten most energy-consumptive manufacturing industries in the United States. This proposed target is based on the best available information and is established at the level which represents the maximum feasible improvement in energy efficiency that the Transportation Equipment Industry (Standard Industrial Classification 37) can achieve by January 1, 1980, taking into account considerations of the technological feasibility and economic practicability of using alternative operating procedures and more energy efficient technologies. The draft target represents the percentage reduction in energy consumed per unit of output or activity that can be achieved between calendar year 1972 and January 1, 1980.
