Abstract : DOE began developing the NES in response to a presidential directive and a legislative requirement that the President biennially prepare and submit to the Congress a National Energy Policy Plan. The administration and DOE have invested considerable time and effort in the enormous and complex task of developing a comprehensive NES. In the early stages of this strategy's development, DOE fulfilled the administration's charge to provide for public participation by holding 18 public hearings in which hundreds of people representing a wide diversity of views on energy issues testified. This public dialogue represented an unprecedented effort by DOE to solicit the nation's views on energy policy. But as the NES development process evolved, there was less public participation in the latter stages of development than DOE originally intended.
