This report provides an assessment of the current landscape of multifamily energy efficiency programs in the 50 metropolitan areas with the largest multifamily housing markets. The authors describe spending on utility customer-funded programs for the primary utilities in each metropolitan area...

Research Report - February 18, 2013

We estimate that in 2010 between $480 and $670 billion (midpoint of $574 billion) was spent on energy-efficient goods and services.  Of these expenditures, between $72 billion and $101 billion (midpoint of $90 billion) was the incremental cost of efficient goods and services relative to...
