ENERGY CONSERVATION: POLICY ISSUES AND END-USE SCENARIOS OF SAVINGS POTENTIAL. PART 6. END-USE ENERGY CONSERVATION DATA BASE AND SCENARIOS

End-use energy conservation scenarios discussed show the combined effect on energy consumption of implementing a number of conservation measures. The scenarios serve two overall purposes. First, they provide a contrast of a series of nonconservation cases based on assumption of growth rate and appliance saturation with conservation cases based on similar assumptions. Second, they provide detailed data and documentation for the savings potential for each conservation measure, the stock affected, and the calculation of total energy savings. Included are conservation measures of both a behavioral nature and technological nature. Quantitative estimates of energy consumption and conservation potential in the major residential and commercial end uses, transportation modes, and industrial subsectors have been made. For each measure and for the total scenario, a base case and a conservation case were computed. The subsectors for which the scenarios are constructed are: residential (electric and gas applicances); commercial end uses (heating, cooling, water heating, lighting); building types retail-wholesale, office, auto-repair, education services, health services, hotel-motel); transportation (auto, truck, van, airplane, bus, railway, motorcycle); freight (truck, rail, air); and industrial subsectors (17 industries).
