Since its creation in 1933, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has evolved into the largest steam coal consumer and electric power producer in the nation. If present plans are completed, it will also be the largest producer of nuclear power. This report, which is the first major review of the TVA power program since 1959, assesses the TVA energy-related problems in terms of numerous national policies related to energy conservation, demand management, expanded use of coal, growth of nuclear power, increased use of renewable resources, and maintenance of environmental quality.

TVA needs different programs and priorities if it is to reflect national energy goals and continue its role as an energy leader and yardstick.
