- Criteria that can be associated with the National Energy Plan (NEP) are outlined to facilitate zero-based budgeting ranking of RD and D packages received by ERDA dealing with conservation. Objectives of the NEP are briefly described. The highest priority in evaluating RD and D is the marginal amount of oil saved in the near and mid-term and the amount of federal money required. Next, priority should be given to technologies that conserve natural gas. Third, priority should be given to technologies that improve the efficiency of the electrical energy system in the near and mid-term. The fourth priority is for those technologies that save oil and gas but will not mature until after 1985. Last, priority should be given to conservation measures that would increase the efficiency of coal fired equipment. An example is given of transportation energy conservation decision packages reorganized to facilitate zero-based budgeting. (MCW)
