Research Report U1808 - October 04, 2018

The twelfth edition of the ACEEE State Energy Efficiency Scorecard gives a progress report on state energy efficiency policies and programs that save energy and produce environmental and economic benefits. The Scorecard uses data vetted by state energy officials to rank states...

Research Report H1802 - March 26, 2018

ACEEE’s Health and Energy Linked (HELP) Awards recognize programs that simultaneously improve human health and save energy. This report highlights the six exemplary programs chosen by a panel of expert advisors to receive the first awards. Case studies describe funding, communities served, and...

Research Report H1801 - February 21, 2018

Pollution from power plants harms public health, contributing to heart attacks, respiratory conditions, asthma attacks, and premature death. Energy efficiency can benefit health by reducing power plant pollution. This report estimates the health and environmental benefits that would come from a...

Research Report A1703 - December 20, 2017

Commercial buildings have their own unique energy systems, ownership structures, and decision-making processes. They also have striking opportunities to save energy by installing smart technologies. Beginning where our previous Smart Buildings study left off, this report takes a deeper...

Research Report - February 01, 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 - 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

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

The use of new vehicle purchase price incentives to promote the fuel economy of cars and light trucks is discussed in this paper. It examines the options and the expected impact of incentives taking the form of fees and rebates ("feebates"). A prototype proposal accounting for vehicle size is...

Research Report - January 01, 1992

This report describes the energy efficiency provisions in the comprehensive 1992 energy bill and estimates their impact on energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. Prepared with the Alliance to Save Energy.

Research Report - January 01, 1992

This study provides estimates of the reductions in oil consumption and CO2 emissions that would result from strengthened Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAF

Research Report - January 01, 1992

This study examines the costs, energy savings and CO2 reductions for new automotive technologies, comparing improved efficiency vehicles with alcohol, natural gas and electricity-powered vehicles. It concludes that there is much overlap between efficiency improvement technologies and...

Research Report - January 01, 1992

A 1992 NRC study concluded that only modest improvements in new car fuel economy would be possible over the next 15 years. This critique points out technological options that were either omitted or downplayed in the NRC study as well as weaknesses in the economic market and policy analyses. It...

Research Report - January 01, 1992

This report recommends how the Department of Energy could strengthen and expand its buildings energy efficiency program. It proposes thirteen major R&D or implementation initiatives. Prepared by an ad hoc group of experts from industry, universities, government, and national laboratories...

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...
