Page 75 - National Coal Council The National Coal Council (NCC) was established on November 21, 1984 to provide advice and recommendations on a continuing basis as requested by the Secretary of Energy on general policy matters relating to coal, including: a) Federal policies which affect, directly or indirectly the production, marketing, and use of coal; b) plans, priorities, and strategies to address more effectively the technological, regulatory, and social impact issues relating to coal production and use;...
Page 366 - States and the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the International Energy Agency (IEA), and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Page 599 - ... scale inhibitors. Hot dry rock research involves the technology of heat extraction from man-made reservoirs in crystalline rock. In FY 1990, after final preparations have been concluded, the long-term flow, test of the large fractured reservoir at Fenton Hill, New Mexico, will begin. This test will mark the last major milestone In determining the feasibility of current heat extraction methods.
Page i - Program (NAPAP) for summarizing the state-of-the-science in add rain research and producing assessment reports useful for policymakers. The FY 1990 budget request of $4.0 million will provide funding for peer reviews of projects in the Office of Energy Research and also in Conservation and Renewable Energy, and Fossil Energy. it will also provide for technical assessments which will be performed in areas such as advanced polymer composites, corrosion, and plastics recycling. in addition, funds will...
Page 901 - US utilities have, for several years, been leading an industry-wide effort to establish a technical foundation for the design of the next generation of light water reactors in the United States. This utility initiative has been effected via a major technical program managed by EPRI.
Page 179 - It also requires the development of preparedness programs and the expansion of productive capacity and supply beyond the levels needed to meet the civilian demand, in order to reduce the time required for full mobilization in the event of an attack on the United States.
Page 593 - Apparatus (HMTEA) at the Seacoast Test Facility of the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii.
Page 1285 - These funds will ensure that BES-supported researchers will continue to have the equipment needed to initiate and continue advanced research, much of which involves experiments at extremes of temperature and pressure. Reliable, precise measurements under these conditions challenge the current state-of-the-art. Replacements and new equipment funded under this request, which are important to the continued success of the program, include such items as electron microscopes, neutron spectrometers, molecular...
Page 647 - LGFSTF responds to this this need by providing an arena in which these entities can cooperatively pursue their mutual interests and extend the capability of the original facility to meet a broader range of testing requirements, as necessary. Given its capability for handling high vapor pressure and other potentially hazardous fluids, the facility is a national asset that is making an important contribution to equipment standards, safety and control issues, and industrial regulations. The FY...
Page 1265 - Physics program continues to Increase our knowledge of atomic nuclei as well as our capability to expand that knowledge base. Scientists now know that neutrons and protons, the constituents of the nucleus that are called nucleons, are composed of smaller constituents called quarks. These quarks are bound together in tightly knit groups of threes. However, scientists have not been able to isolate quarks outside the nucleus. It is as if quarks were tied together by elastic strings that cannot be broken....
