1. Implement a model energy program in a specific town or village. This program could include development of codes and programs such as weatherization. U.S. groups may help with advice and the model could serve as an example to be replicated in other locations.

  2. Begin technical exchanges between American and Bulgarian/Romanian engineering technical societies to develop some voluntary performance standards for certain equipment such as lighting, appliances, or gas furnaces.

  3. Begin technical exchanges on environmental regulations, especially for power production. Exchanges on fuel standards would also be useful.

  4. Develop ways to inform the population about regulations on energy use and conservation.

  5. Train engineers and technicians working in energy-related positions on energy codes and regulations.
