EIA Releases Analysis of NCEP Fuel Economy Recommendations.

The National Commission on Energy Policy (NCEP) recently announced that the Department of Energy's (DOE) Energy Information Administration (EIA) has released a detailed analysis of policy recommendations made by NCEP in its December report, "Ending the Energy Stalemate: A Bipartisan Strategy to Address America's Energy Challenges."

According to NCEP, the EIA study analyzes a number of the commission's major recommendations, including those related to fuel economy and a cap and trade proposal for addressing climate change.

NCEP said the study's findings include that petroleum use is expected to drop 7.3 percent in 2025, compared to forecast levels, due to tighter vehicle fuel efficiency standards, and that natural gas use is expected to fall 3.6 percent in 2025, versus a 1.1-percent increase under the emissions trading program alone, due to efficiency programs, increased renewables and increased deployment of integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) technology.
