ALTERNATIVES TO LNG IN THE UNITED STATES
United States energy supply and demand is reviewed. The various forms of energy which will make up the supply in the future and the technologies needed are discussed, such as the generation of electricity and gas from coal, nuclear energy, oil shale and tar sands, geothermal and solar energy. Hydrogen utilization, fuel cells, magnetohydrodynamic power plants and waste conversion are also dealt with. Water supply and price considerations are discussed, and President Carter's energy proposals are briefly commented on. The report concludes that there are no satisfactory short-term solutions to LNG-imports. Order from NSFI as No. 14805.
