Energy use in the marine transportation industry. Task IV. Industry future. Draft report

Description: Future industry scenarios for energy consumption in the marine transport industry are projected and the energy savings potential of the research and development program identified in Task III (Efficiency Improvements) against these scenarios is evaluated. The introduction is contained in Chapter I. In Chapter II, the operational, regulatory, and vessel size scenarios for the year 2000 are developed. In Chapter III, future cargo flows and expected levels of energy use for the baseline 2000 projection are determined. In Chapter IV, the research and development programs are introduced into the future US flag fleet and the energy savings potential associated with each is determined. (MCW)

Comparative cost analyses: total flow vs other power conversion systems for the Salton Sea Geothermal Resource

Description: Cost studies were done for Total Flow, double flash, and multistage flash binary systems for electric Energy production from the Salton Sea Geothermal Resource. The purpose was to provide the Department of energy's Division of Geothermal Energy with information by which to judge whether to continue development of the Total Flow system. Results indicate that the Total Flow and double flash systems have capital costs of $1,135 and $1,026 /kW with energy costs of 40.9 and 39.7 mills/kW h respectively. The Total Flow and double flash systems are not distinguishable on a cost basis alone; the multistage flash binary system, with capital cost of $1,343 /kW and energy cost of 46.9 mills/kW h, is significantly more expensive. If oil savings are considered in the total analysis, the Total Flow system could save 30% more oil than the double flash system, $3.5 billion at 1978 oil prices.
