Amends the Hoover Power Plant Act of 1984 to establish guidelines within which the Administrator of the Western Area Power Administration shall require each customer purchasing electric energy under a long-term firm power service contract with the Western Area Power Administration to implement integrated resource planning by October 1995. Permits different regulations for certain small customers that have limited capability to conduct integrated resource planning. Authorizes the Administrator to provide customers with technical assistance to implement such resource planning. Sets forth: (1) a schedule within which each customer must submit an initial integrated resource plan and periodic revisions to the Administrator; and (2) approval criteria for integrated resource plans. Provides for enforcement of integrated resource plan requirements, including the imposition of a surcharge, and a reduction in the power allocation of a noncomplying customer. Permits customers to form integrated resource planning cooperatives.

Amends PURPA to mandate that: (1) gas utilities employ integrated resource planning for gas customers; and (2) the rates charged by a State regulated gas utility are such that its prudent outlays for demandside measures (such as energy conservation and load shifting programs) are at least as profitable as its outlays for supplies and facilities. Requires a State regulatory authority to implement its integrated resource planning standards in a manner that assures that utilities are not provided with unfair competitive advantages over small businesses.

Subtitle C: Appliance and Equipment Energy Efficiency Standards - Directs the Secretary to provide financial assistance to support a voluntary national window rating program that will develop energy ratings and labels for windows and window systems. Requires the National Fenestration Rating Council to develop such rating program according to specified procedures. Requires the Secretary to develop specified alternative rating systems if a national voluntary window rating program consistent with this Act has not been developed.

Amends the Energy Policy and Conservation Act to: (1) detail energy conservation and labeling requirements for specified commercial and industrial equipment (including lamps and plumbing products); and (2) delineate standards for heating and air-conditioning equipment, electric motors, high intensity discharge lamps, and distribution transformers.

Directs the Secretary to provide financial and technical assistance to support a voluntary national testing and information program for widely used commercial office equipment and luminaries with potential for significant energy savings.

Requires the Secretary to report to the Congress on: (1) the potential for the development and commercialization of appliances which are substantially more efficient than required by Federal or State law; and (2) the energy savings and environmental benefits of early appliance replacement programs.

Subtitle D: Industrial - Directs the Secretary to: (1) make matching grants to industry associations for energy efficiency improvement programs; (2) establish an annual recognition award program for industrial entities that have significantly improved their energy efficiency; and (3) report to the Congress on the establishment of Federally mandated energy efficiency reporting requirements and voluntary energy efficiency improvement targets for energy intensive industries.

Directs the Secretary to make renewable grants to the States to: (1) promote the use of energy-efficient technologies in covered industries; (2) establish industry-by-industry training programs to conduct process-oriented industrial assessments; (3) assist utilities in developing energy efficiency programs and technologies for industrial customers in covered industries; (4) establish and update criteria for conducting process-oriented industrial assessments on an industry-by-industry basis energy efficiency technologies; (5) establish a nationwide directory of organizations offering industrial energy efficiency assessments, technologies, and services; (6) establish an annual recognition award program for utilities operating outstanding or innovative industrial energy efficiency technology assistance programs; and (7) convene annual meetings of parties interested in process-oriented industries. Authorizes appropriations.

Requires the Secretary to: (1) establish voluntary guidelines for energy efficiency audits and insulation in industrial facilities; and (2) conduct educational and technical assistance programs to promote their use.

Subtitle E: State and Local Assistance - Amends the Energy Policy and Conservation Act to: (1) authorize the Secretary to provide funds to specified States to finance energy efficiency improvements in State and local government buildings; and (2) expand the optional features of State energy conservation programs.
