    Of course, the Japanese and U.S. economies differ in important ways, but the comparison nevertheless suggests that there is scope to boost energy efficiency in the United States and other parts of the industrialized world. @article{osti_, title = {Industrial energy conservation}, author = {Chiogioji, M H}, abstractNote = {A ready reference on energy consumption patterns and conservation measures available in typical manufacturing processes is presented. The following subjects are discussed: historic energy usage, energy and GNP, patterns of energy use in industry, potential for and international.

    Equally important, the federal government currently funds more than 33 % of all U.S. industrial research and development 3 and employs (directly or indirectly) more than 35 % of the nation’s. 8 U.S. Department of Energy O verall growth in the U.S. housing market, despite the recent down-turn, has driven an increase in electricity consumption. Electricity is the largest energy source for buildings, and that predominance has grown. Natural gas is the second largest energy source and petroleum (predominantly heating oil) a distant third.
