EMD-77-67: Published: Sep 9, 1977. Publicly Released: Sep 9, 1977.
The substantial changes in the organization, management, and content of the solar and other energy research, development, and demonstration programs that have occurred since the Solar Energy Research Institute's (SERI) authorization in late 1974 call into question the need for establishing SERI. There are a number of actions which Congress may wish to consider during its deliberations on the Energ...
Energy Production and Supply

Management and funding aspects of three nonnuclear energy research, development, and demonstration subprograms under the Energy Research and Development Administration were examined. The three subprograms were: photovoltaic energy of the solar energy program; direct combustion of the coal program; and hydrothermal technology application of the geothermal energy development program.The extent to wh...
Opportunities to Improve Planning for Solar Energy Research and Development
EMD-77-8: Published: Nov 30, 1976. Publicly Released: Nov 30, 1976.
The Energy Research and Development Administration's (ERDA) solar research, development, and demonstration program was surveyed to assess the adequacy of the planning process established to meet program goals.ERDA research focuses on seven different solar technologies, for which a number of program plans have been established. However, ERDA's present plans indicate only a 10-percent solar contribu...
