An effective environmental monitoring program must have a quality assurance component to assure the production of valid data. Quality assurance has many components: calibration standards, standard reference materials, standard reference methods, interlaboratory comparison studies, and data validation. The purpose of this document is to identify and document the potential radioactive pollutants that could result from the expanded energy program and for which quality assurance programs must be provided. The radionuclide releases and the resulting population exposure doses from several energy systems for four projected energy utilization scenarios were calculated and compared. The energy system components examined were: coal mining, processing, combustion, and ash disposal; coal gasification and liquefaction; oil shale mining, processing, residue disposal and product utilization; geothermal and development and operations; uranium mining, milling, conversion, enrichment and fabrication; nuclear reactor operations; and fuel reprocessing and waste disposal.
