This study provides an analysis of the potential national energy-savings impacts of EDST, using available 2004 data; however, it is not intended to fulfill the reporting requirement of EPAct section 110(c). In addition to providing an estimate of potential energy savings, this study identifies data and methods that could support future analyses, including the study required by section 110(c). Using information obtained from review of the literature and available 2004 energy data, this study analyzed the potential energy impacts due to changes in electricity consumption. Potential non-energy impacts that may result from the extended DST were not analyzed in detail in this study. These other potential impacts include children traveling to school during darkness, traffic accident rates, crime rates, electronics changeover to new EDST dates, airline schedule changes, and agricultural work scheduling.
