he said. And he added, "it ap-
pears possible that by the year
2000, solar energy systems
might be capable of supplying
5 to 10 per cent of total U.S.
electricity requirements."
Sawhill said the United Statesl
already has had close contact
with Japan, "a leading solar
technology center," and wouldl
work with other nations in co-
operative solar research.
"We seek the technology for,
solar-thermal and photovoltaic
electrical generation, for heat-
ing and cooling buildings and
for harnessing the offspring of
solar energy - the wind, tides
and ocean thermal gradients,"
he said.
