Exemplary Energy Efficiency Programs
Baseball’s All-Star Game assembles teams of the best athletes to face off against each other and play at an extraordinary level, beyond what is possible during the regular season. Natural gas and electric utilities design and build dual-fuel energy efficiency programs that score added energy savings and cut costs beyond what they could have achieved on their own. While the All-Star Game happens just once each year, combined gas and electric energy efficiency programs are performing at levels beyond the ordinary on an ongoing basis.
In the last few years, customer-funded energy efficiency programs administered by utilities and statewide public benefits organizations have been developing innovative program designs, services, and delivery methods and expanding into new markets across the country.

ACEEE Launches New Web-Based Resource in Response to Opportunities in Local Energy Efficiency Policy
Local policy is becoming an increasingly important driver for energy efficiency with local governments and other local leaders continuing to create innovative solutions even when federal and state leadership is lacking. Additionally, local governments have many responsibilities and relationships that put them in a unique position to effectively translate energy efficiency goals into successful implementation, and ultimately create tangible on-the-ground results.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) earned recognition for three outstanding programs in ACEEE's latest States Stepping Forward report, which can be accessed here. The programs present unique, innovative models to hasten the market penetration of energy efficiency technologies in municipal wastewater facilities, commercial facilities, and industrial buildings.
