The report examines the energy requirements and supplies (especially fossil fuels) needed to jointly meet both energy and air quality requirements in seven air quality control regions within the Northeast Corridor during the 1970-1975 period. The Northeast Corridor includes the east coast of the United States from Boston to Washington. This area encompasses all or at least a major part of the air quality control regions of Boston, Providence, Hartford, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia , Baltimore, and Washington. The essential purpose of the study is to identify major gap areas in near term fuel use and projected supply requirements considering both the need for energy and the need for environmental protection. An equally important objective is to provide recommendations with respect to specific steps needed to be taken in order to fill energy gaps in an environmentally acceptable manner as revealed by the study.
