The report addresses the energy requirements for environmental control in the fossil fuel, steam electric industry. These requirements arise through a number of mechanisms, including: direct fuel or electricity requirements for operating pollution control equipment, including production of necessary chemicals and disposal of wastes; energy used in constructing control equipment; fuels consumed in transporting low sulfur fuels; extra fuel consumed to compensate for power plants' efficiency losses caused by environmental controls; and energy used in constructing extra generation capacity to compensate for efficiency losses. These requirements are computed for a variety of energy policy 'scenarios' to demonstrate the impact of altering current environmental regulations or of utilizing alternate strategies for achieving environmental goals. In particular, the effect of requiring 'Best Available Control Technologies' for power plants, of using tall stacks and/or supplementary control systems, and of using coal washing and/or blending to decrease the necessity for 'scrubbers' are examined in different scenarios.
