Research Report T921 - January 1, 1992
The use of new vehicle purchase price incentives to promote the fuel economy of cars and light trucks is discussed in this paper. It examines the options and the expected impact of incentives taking the form of fees and rebates ("feebates"). A prototype proposal accounting for vehicle...
Research Report T922 - January 1, 1992
This study provides estimates of the reductions in oil consumption and CO2 emissions that would result from strengthened Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAF
Research Report T923 - January 1, 1992
This study examines the costs, energy savings and CO2 reductions for new automotive technologies, comparing improved efficiency vehicles with alcohol, natural gas and electricity-powered vehicles. It concludes that there is much overlap between efficiency improvement technologies and alternative...
Research Report T924 - January 1, 1992
A 1992 NRC study concluded that only modest improvements in new car fuel economy would be possible over the next 15 years. This critique points out technological options that were either omitted or downplayed in the NRC study as well as weaknesses in the economic market and policy analyses. It...
Research Report U921 - January 1, 1992
This paper reviews recent utility efforts to promote demand-side management, summarizes the lessons taught by these efforts, and recommends ways to increase the amount of savings achieved in the future. Published in the 1992 Annual Review of Energy..
Research Report U923 - January 1, 1992
How state energy codes and utility new construction programs can complement each others to maximize energy savings is the focus of this paper. Seven coordination strategies are discussed and examples given of where each has been used. Prepared for the New Construction Programs for Demand-Side...
Research Report U924 - January 1, 1992
This is a review of the energy efficiency provisions in the 1992 federal energy law that affects electric utilities. It estimates the potential electricity savings and discusses how utilities, regulators and DSM advocates should respond. Prepared for the 6th National DSM Conference.
