By 2010, U.S. oil and coal consumption are projected to rise by almost one-fifth over 1990 levels. The nation's continued heavy reliance on fossil fuels, particularly oil and coal, raises questions about its ability to meet energy security, environmental, and economic objectives. This report examines how other industrialized nations have dealt with the dilemma. GAO discusses the (1) factors that influence the type and the amount of energy that other nations use and, specifically, the trends in energy supply and use in Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and South Korea and (2) key policies and programs that these nations have adopted to promote conservation and the efficient use of oil and coal in their transportation and industrial sectors.
