foreign countries

It is the purpose of this section to provide for the

demonstration of solar energy and other renewable energy

technologies in foreign countries through the use of such energy in

buildings acquired under subsection (a) of section 292 of this

title, in order that -

(1) countries in which such buildings are located may be given

visible incentives to develop and use local solar energy or other

renewable energy resources to reduce dependence upon petroleum

and petroleum products;

(2) markets may be developed for American solar energy systems

and components in order to stimulate investment in such systems

and components and to reduce the costs of such systems and

components to reasonable levels;

(3) in furtherance of the purpose of section 2151q (!1) of this

title, cooperation may be developed between the United States and

other countries in an effort to develop solar energy or other

renewable energy systems within a short period of time; and

(4) equipment which is vital to the operation of sensitive

application of solar energy or other forms of renewable energy in

buildings acquired under subsection (a) section 292 of this title.

in which such projects are to be implemented. Upon the request of

the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Energy shall provide to

the Secretary of State any technical information or other technical

assistance which the Secretary of State considers necessary with

respect to any such project. Any project selected under this

section should be similar to projects which have been demonstrated

by the Department of Energy (or any of its predecessor agencies) to

be reliable, maintainable, and technically feasible.

(3) Any project selected under this section shall be adaptable to

the local resources, climatic conditions, and economic

circumstances of the country in which such project is implemented

in order that such country will be more likely to implement similar

projects.

(4) The Secretary of State shall insure that any project selected

under this section is demonstrated to, and available for inspection

by, officials and other citizens of the country in which such

project is implemented.

(5) In selecting projects under this section, the Secretary of

State shall give priority to projects to be implemented in

developing countries.

(c) Planning for use of renewable energy systems in construction of

new buildings

Whenever any building is constructed under the authority

contained in section 292 of this title, the Secretary of State

shall insure that the planning for such construction takes into

account those renewable energy systems which are available in the

country in which the building is to be constructed.

In addition to amounts otherwise available for such purposes,

$4,000,000 of the amount authorized to be appropriated by section
