Our new guide helps separate the Pikachus from the Digletts of energy efficiency behavior-change programs

In the energy efficiency world, programs that reduce energy use by targeting human behavior are relatively few, but proliferating quickly. In 2013, some US states claimed as much as 28% of their energy efficiency savings from behavior change programs. Like Pokémon Go characters in the wild, some behavior change programs are common, well-known, and seen everywhere. Others are rare and largely unknown.

Looking for small business energy efficiency program data, designs, strategies, and more

There are over 25 million small enterprises that form the backbone of our national economy. They are critical to the health of local economies, generating well over half of net new private-sector jobs, according to the US Small Business Administration. Many are home-based firms with few employees, but many also occupy commercial retail space. The small business sector uses over 30% of all commercial space, more than 20 billion square feet of buildings to be heated, cooled, and lit up.

The next generation of energy efficiency programs could save 22% of electricity use in 2030

Energy efficiency has come a long way. From its roots in the energy crises of the 1970s, it has grown and evolved to become an integral part of our energy landscape. Examples of energy efficiency advances are ubiquitous and often invisible. We see the results of such advances in the slow growth of electricity demand in recent years. Our homes, offices, businesses, and factories continue to become more energy efficient due to innovation in technologies and applications.

Combined natural gas and electric utility energy efficiency programs score expanded savings

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.

New Legislation Would Direct Long-Overdue Study of Motor System Use in U.S.

Did you know that motors use about half of the electricity in the U.S.? From large industrial machines, to commercial equipment, to home appliances, to even our computers and smart phones, motors are everywhere. Unfortunately we don’t have many details on how the energy use is distributed among the motors’ loads because it has been over 15 years since U.S. Department of Energy [no-glossary](DOE)[/no-glossary] commissioned the last national motor study, and the U.S.

Targeted Energy Efficiency Tax Incentives Have History of Cost Savings Success

Washington, D.C.—Well-targeted energy efficiency tax incentives will result in significant energy savings and will get more energy-efficient products into the market faster, according to Steven Nadel, executive director of the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, who testified before the U.S. Senate Finance Committee today. The Senate hearing focused on appropriate uses of the federal tax code for promoting investments in energy efficiency, particularly in the context of emerging discussions on tax reform.
