Abstract:

The Solar Energy Task Force Report for the Project Independence Blueprint Study concludes that economically viable solar energy con- version systems can be developed and installed in substantial numbers well before the year 2000 to provide significant quantities of energy and power for the United States. R&D programs and implementation scenarios are described for six technically feasible solar energy technologies for heating and cooling buildings, providing high tempera- ture heat, and producing electric power or clean fuels. Projections of potential upper-bound annual energy contributions of each of these six solar energy technologies are presented at 5-year intervals up to the year 2000 in Table I-l of the Overview Section. Table I-2 in this same section provides estimates of the equivalent number of barrels of oil that would not need to be imported if the implementation of these solar energy technologies resulted in the substitution of the amounts of domestically derived energy shown in Table I-l. The report emphasizes the widespread, domestic, long-term, reliable availability of solar energy resources, and the general environmental acceptability of solar energy power systems. Finally, the report outlines the types of solar energy research, technology development, and system implementation needed to help meet the objectives of Project Independence.
