The national policy on conservation of energy and related resources brought about by the energy crisis of 1973 prompted the Port Authority Trans-Hudson Corporation (PATH) to develop an energy conservation program. In the accomplishment of the technical study, PATH was to review and evaluate current energy conservation practices instituted on the PATH system and to perform extensive operational planning and comparative analysis required for the implementation of additional potential energy savings measures. This report discusses in detail the five tasks which were used in carrying out the work required in the project: (1) investigation of current practices; (2) potential service modifications; (3) rail car power investigation; (4) potential long-range improvements; and (5) preparation of a final report describing the work accomplished during the project.
