Annotation: THIS REPORT DISCUSSES THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY'S (DOE'S) EFFORTS THROUGH THE FEDERAL ENERGY MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (FEMP)TO DEVELOP AND PROMOTE A TRANSPORTATION ENERGY CONSERVATION PROGRAM IN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
Abstract: WHILE SIGNIFICANT REDUCTIONS HAVE BEEN REPORTED IN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S USE OF ENERGY SINCE FISCAL YEAR 1973, DOE HAS NOT PROVIDED THE LEADERSHIP NECESSARY FOR A STRONG, STRUCTURED TRANSPORTATION ENERGY CONSERVATION PROGRAM. THE REPORTED REDUCTIONS, TO GREAT EXTENT, ARE THE RESULT OF OPERATIONAL CHANGES AND NOT THE RESULT OF CONSERVATION ACTIVITIES. THE REPORT RECOMMENDS THAT DOE, THROUGH THE FEMP, TAKE MORE ACTIVE LEADERSHIP ROLE IN THE TRANSPORTATION AREA BY ISSUING GUIDANCE, REQUIRING AGENCY PLANS AND GOALS, INVESTIGATING AND PROMOTING KNOWN TRANSPORTATION ENERGY AND CONSERVATION OPPORTUNITIES, PROVIDING TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE, AND DEVELOPING A BETTER MEANS OF MONITORING AND EVALUATING AGENCY CONSERVATION ACTIVITIES. TABLES AND FOOTNOTES ARE INCLUDED. (PRG)
