Utilities across the Country Increasingly Turning to Energy Efficiency as the Lowest-Cost Energy Resource
ACEEE has collaborated with state and local stakeholders for decades, arming them with valuable, up-to-date resources on energy efficiency to facilitate effective program and policy development and deployment.
Looking forward into 2012, I see more reasons for optimism than pessimism. Many states and utilities are committed to ramping up their energy efficiency programs this year and even more are considering similar steps. For example, Massachusetts electric utility programs are targeting 2.4% savings this year as part of a ramp-up rate originally established a few years ago.
EIA Finds That Energy Efficiency Can Reduce the Cost of a Clean Energy Standard and Reduce Emissions
On November 30, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) released an Analysis of Impacts of a Clean Energy Standard. The study was requested by Senator Jeff Bingaman, Chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
This week, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) released its annual rankings of the 50 states and District of Columbia on their progress toward adopting and implementing various energy-efficiency policies and programs. This year’s State Energy Efficiency Scorecard reveals that many states are making great advancements in energy efficiency on all fronts – from transportation to industry to buildings, helping Americans save money and creating new business and employment opportunities across the
