A key recommendation of the Bush administration's National Energy Policy was the reduction of the energy intensity of the U.S. economy — the amount of energy required to produce a unit of economic output. As a step toward implementation, in May 2002, the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy gathered more than 150 energy experts from federal, state, and local government; industry; academia; and nongovernmental organizations at its E-Vision 2002 Conference to discuss ways of reducing the country's energy intensity. This volume summarizes the presentations and discussions that took place at the conference. For each of four main energy-consuming sectors of the American economy — as well as for the economy as a whole — participants examined historical trends and possible futures in energy intensity; reviewed private- and public-sector experiences at energy intensity reduction; identified current options; and defined goals and the actions necessary to achieve them. This is a key work for those at all levels involved in setting or implementing the National Energy Policy. Volume II on CD-ROM contains additional conference material and is enclosed with the report.
