Research Report A1501 - January 27, 2015
This paper describes recent advances in energy-saving elevator technologies and recommends a path for accelerating the uptake of these new capabilities. New building codes are stimulating the adoption of modern systems that can save more than 40% of current annual energy use. ACEEE recommends...
White Paper - January 23, 2015
In this paper we provide further support of our comment already submitted to the record, focusing on two aspects of the provision in order to determine whether building energy codes should be considered in setting the standards of performance. The first aspect we focus on is what it means for a...
Research Report U1501 - January 14, 2015
This report analyzes ten categories of utility-sector energy efficiency programs that have achieved high participation among targeted customer markets. Despite issues with the nature and availability of participation data, the study draws on published data sources and interviews with program...
Research Report IE1501 - January 6, 2015
Businesses that implement energy efficiency improvements often enjoy other benefits besides utility bill savings. However previous efforts to measure multiple benefits have been sporadic and far from rigorous. Still, evidence suggests that including non-energy impacts can reduce the payback time of...
Research Report A1403 - December 17, 2014
A zero net energy (ZNE) building is a home or commercial building that on average produces as much energy as it uses, achieved through energy efficiency and renewable technologies.  Building energy codes can help us transition to ZNE construction for new residential and commercial buildings by...
Research Report T1401 - December 10, 2014
This report surveys transportation-sector strategies that use information and communications technologies (ICT) and have the potential to save energy. These include car and bike sharing, real-time transit information, in-vehicle ICT applications, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, and...
Regulatory Filing - November 15, 2014
These comments were submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency in response to the proposed Clean Power Plan which would regulate carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants.
Research Report F1402 - November 12, 2014
The U.S. economy shows signs of weakening. Among the reasons for less vigorous economic activity is the inefficient use of resources—and especially the inefficient use of energy. New information and communication technologies (ICT) make possible dramatically reduced costs and higher levels of...
White Paper - November 5, 2014
This paper shows a range of energy intensities for water and wastewater services and in residential hot and cold water. We draw from existing data to develop national estimates of energy savings associated with water savings, including energy used in water conveyance, water heating, and water and...
Research Report U1408 - October 21, 2014
For the past eight years, the ACEEE State Energy Efficiency Scorecard has measured the progress of state policies and programs that save energy while also benefiting the environment and promoting economic growth. Using data vetted by state energy officials, we rank states in six...
