Research Report - January 01, 1992

This report describes the status of technologies for increasing the efficiency of electricity use. Barriers to implementation and policies to expand adoption of these technologies worldwide. Prepared with Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy.

Research Report - January 01, 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

Research Report - January 01, 1992

How state energy codes and utility new construction programs can complement each others to maximize energy savings is the focus of this paper. Seven coordination strategies are discussed and examples given of where each has been used. Prepared for the New Construction Programs for Demand-Side...

Research Report - July 01, 1991

This review looks at utility demand-side management (DSM) results and plans; a study of the achievable conservation potential in New York State; and estimates of the energy savings available from market forces, building codes and equipment efficiency standards. It concludes that utilities can...

E-Book - March 28, 1991

The electric utility industry has moved from a growth-oriented environment into a period of instability, competition and restructuring. This book outlines the...

Research Report - March 01, 1991

This report describes a major study on America's energy choices completed by four national environmental and energy efficiency advocacy organizations in 1991. This study was conceived as an alternative to the U.S. government's National Energy Strategy. The objective was to examine the role...

Research Report - February 01, 1991

Programs that developing countries can use to help reduce growth in electricity demand are reviewed in this paper. Sixteen types of program options are discussed, including examples of countries in which each option has been used.

Research Report - January 01, 1991

This paper shows how cost-effective efficiency measures can reduce carbon dioxide emissions at a negative net cost. Examples include more efficient automobiles, refrigerators, appliance standards, utility programs, and national policy initiatives. It is a chapter from the book, Global Climate...

Research Report - January 01, 1991

This paper reviews the results of 42 impact evaluations conducted by electric utilities and examines how engineering estimates of savings compare to impact evaluation results. Prepared for the 1991 International Energy Program Evaluation Conference.
