From the publication:
Foreword The National Energy Research Steering Group (LSEO) has decided to issue an interim report, despite the fact that the time that has elapsed since its establishment has been too short for a comprehensive picture of the energy research required to be presented. There are several reasons for proceeding with the publication of a number of recommendations at this early juncture. For example, the existence of the LS EO may delay research, since several of the projects submitted will be assessed on the basis of the guidelines it draws up. Also, it was considered advisable that the Energy Memorandum issued by the Minister for Economic Affairs in September 1974 should be supplemented at an early date by a research programme. lt has not been possible, in the time available, to deal with all relevant subjects. One reason was the desire to base the research proposals on their significance for complete systems and on comparative evaluations if there are several possible ways of attaining the same objective. Although this procedure may result in sound criteria, it is also time consuming in that it calls for a great deal of interdisciplinary study on the part of the members oftheLSEO. Early publication of an interim report has many drawbacks. For instance, some members of the LSEO will see in it little or no evidence of their views on the energy problem. If publication had been deferred for a few months it would, moreover, have been possible to produce a more concise report. However, such postponement was not considered to be warranted, since it would not have changed the essence of the proposals for research and evaluation. Many people have assisted in the compilation of the report. As regards its actual production, a debt of gratitude is recorded to the State University, Utrecht, and the Netherlands Nuclear Research Centre.
