Examines the plans and goals to secure and transform America's energy future. America's Energy Future is intended to inform the development of wise energy policies by fostering a better understanding of technological options for increasing energy supplies and improving the efficiency of energy use.
This summary edition of the book will also be a useful resource for professionals working in the energy industry or involved in advocacy and researchers and academics in energy-related. America's Energy Future analyzes the potential of a wide range of technologies for generation, distribution, and conservation of energy.
This book considers technologies to increase energy efficiency, coal-fired power generation, nuclear power, renewable energy, oil and natural gas, and alternative transportation fuels. Most Americans do not fully appreciate what it will take for America to achieve true energy security and energy Independence using sustainable energy.
But, if future Americans are to be energy secure, then America must build the equivalent of roughly 2, Hoover Dams this century before our technically recoverable fossil fuel endowment is exhausted.
The results of this are well known: soaring energy prices, block-long gas lines, and uncertainty about America's energy and economic future. To be sure, there are shortcomings.
