Research Report - June 13, 2013

Large-scale introduction of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) into the light-duty fleet would substantially reduce U.S. oil consumption. It could also deliver important environmental benefits—specifically reduced emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) and other pollutants, but these benefits will...

Research Report - June 11, 2013

In April 2012, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a new source performance standard (NSPS), limiting carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from new fossil fuel–fired electric generating units (EGUs). Under Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act (CAA), the EPA and state governments...

Energy is one of the largest costs of home ownership, only surpassed by mortgage payments and about the same as the cost of real estate taxes. Fortunately, there is much that can be done to reduce the energy use of both new homes and existing homes and it is typically less expensive to reduce...

Research Report - June 03, 2013

The ACEEE International Scorecard Self-Scoring Tool is an analytic tool that helps users develop a high-level snapshot of the overall energy efficiency of a nation, state, or province. The tool is based on the 2012 ACEEE International Energy...

Fact Sheet - June 02, 2013

Major opportunities are available to increase the fuel efficiency of heavy-duty vehicles beyond the technologies needed to meet the standards in place for model years 2014 to 2018. We evaluate fuel-saving technologies now available or under development for three major classes of heavy-duty...

Research Report - May 31, 2013

This study finds that energy efficiency potential is largely untapped in Louisiana, and that a set of policies and programs can cost-effectively meet 5% cumulative of statewide electricity needs by 2020, increasing to 16% cumulative by 2030; and 3% cumulative of natural gas needs by 2020,...

Research Report - May 31, 2013

The homes, buildings, and other facilities in New Orleans hold great potential for improved efficiency, which together can reduce energy demand and save consumers money by avoiding the need for new traditional energy investments. Energy efficiency investments are proven, cost-effective methods...

Fact Sheet - May 22, 2013

ACEEE is undertaking a multi-year project to improve and expand utility energy efficiency programs for multifamily homes. Despite the tremendous opportunity to improve the energy efficiency of multifamily buildings, very few utility programs are designed specifically to serve these buildings...

Research Report - May 21, 2013

Efficiency standards have played a major role in saving energy and water and reducing utility bills. This report analyzes how the choices available to consumers have changed over time as efficiency standards have taken effect for ten residential, commercial, and lighting products. The report...

Research Report - May 16, 2013

Energy program administrators are sponsoring the placement of dedicated energy managers at industrial facilities to overcome the obstacles to energy optimization.  These pilot efforts seek to accelerate the pace and volume of industrial efficiency initiatives. This report describes five...
