Summary

The Energy Policy and Conservation Act requires certain manufacturing corporations to report on energy efficiency improvement. The National Energy Act modified the reporting program and requires DOE to analyze the costs and benefits of industrial equipment efficiency standards. Program implementation, issues, and outlooks are reviewed. Other activities for which DOE's Industrial Programs Office is responsible are also summarized.
