E-Book - March 28, 1992
In the past few years utilities and their regulators have come to realize that the current regulatory system financially rewards utilities that sell more electricity and penalizes those that sell less. Thus, the current regulatory system discourages utilities from pursuing energy-efficiency...
Research Report ED922 - February 1, 1992
Examines the impacts on employment and income that could result from improving energy efficiency are examined in this report. It shows that substantial energy efficiency improvements throughout the U.S. economy (including a special analysis of the impact of improving motor vehicle efficiency)...
Research Report A921 - January 1, 1992
In this paper, national minimum efficiency standards on lamps, motors, showerheads, and heating and air conditioning equipment for commercial buildings are proposed. It also analyzes energy savings that would result from the standards and the current political status
