Research Report - January 01, 1990

This report is a complete literature review of technologies for improving heavy truck fuel economy, including improvements to engines, transmissions, tires, aerodynamics, and alternative engines. Prepared for Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory.

Research Report - January 01, 1990

The costs and energy saving potential for automobile fuel economy technologies are analyzed to develop supply curves of conserved energy. This report concludes that it is cost effective to increase new car fuel economy to 44 MPG by the year 2000. Previously entitled "Light Vehicle Fuel Economy...

Research Report - January 01, 1990

This paper summarize4s and updates the results of the 204-page ACEEE report on Lamp Efficiency Standards for Massachusetts. It also includes a section on the impact of the proposed standards on lighting design. The paper was presented at the Annual Meeting of the Illuminating Engineering...

Research Report - January 01, 1990

This study reviews energy consumption and intensity trends in each sector of the economy, showing that about three-quarters of the decline in total energy use per unit of GNP was induced by efficiency improvements. It was published in the 1990 Annual Review of Energy.

Research Report - October 01, 1989

The technical potential for electricity conservation and load management is much greater than the savings that U.S. utilities have achieved to date. Recent trends could narrow the gap between conservation potential and implementation. Load growth among several utilities that have aggressively...

Research Report - September 01, 1989

An examination of the potential for electricity savings and peak demand reduction in New York is contained in this in-depth study. Included are: analysis of electricity end use by sector and building type; estimates of the electricity and peak demand savings and costs for 62 conservation and...

Research Report - January 01, 1989

This paper discusses the results of a field survey of new commercial buildings that examined how current construction practice compares in lighting energy intensity to the proposed ASHRAE/IES standard. The conclusion is that the proposed standard will be easy to meet in most buildings....

Research Report - January 01, 1989

This paper recommends ten major energy efficiency policy initiatives and analyzes the energy savings, economic savings, and carbon dioxide emissions reduction that could result from their adoption. Report concludes that given widespread but realistic energy efficiency improvements, it is...

Research Report - January 01, 1989

This report responds to a widely referenced study by Robert Crandall and John Graham, which concluded that federal automobile fuel economy standards have caused increased highway fatalities. It critiques the study and concludes that improved automobile fuel economy and auto safety are not...

Research Report - January 01, 1989

This is a concise overview of transportation energy use in the U.S. The paper includes an analysis of the historical changes in energy intensity by transportation mode. Trends in highway travel and light vehicle fuel economy, and factors that contribute to their change are discussed....
