products. Energy conservation, therefore, should not be pursued in isolation from other economic objectives. Rather, it should be an integral part of greater efforts to improve overall economic efficiency. Second, in developing energy- conservation strategies, policymakers should go beyond energy products. They should explore not only conservation opportunities in direct consumption of energy products, but also indirect energy savings from more efficient use of nonenergy products. Third, not all energy-saving opportunities are equal. Energy- conservation efforts should give priority to those sectors or products whose energy-efficiency improvement, through interindustry linkages, will result in the largest energy savings. Fourth, there is no simple, standard policy formula to promote energy conservation. An effective strategy must be based on diagnosis--finding the causes of energy wastes in specific situations and then carefully designing strategies to overcome them. As conditions and situations change, policymakers must also shift the types of strategies used to improve energy efficiency.
