Research Report U1901 - January 16, 2019

ACEEE has reviewed exemplary customer-funded electric and natural gas utility programs every five years since 2003. For this edition of the report, we solicited nominations nationally and analyzed them in collaboration with an independent expert advisory panel. We ultimately selected 53 models...

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 - January 01, 1990

This study reviews energy consumption and intensity trends in each sector of the economy, showing that about three-quarters of the decline in total energy use per unit of GNP was induced by efficiency improvements. It was published in the 1990 Annual Review of Energy.

Research Report - January 01, 1990

This paper summarize4s and updates the results of the 204-page ACEEE report on Lamp Efficiency Standards for Massachusetts. It also includes a section on the impact of the proposed standards on lighting design. The paper was presented at the Annual Meeting of the Illuminating Engineering...

Research Report - January 01, 1990

This report is a complete literature review of technologies for improving heavy truck fuel economy, including improvements to engines, transmissions, tires, aerodynamics, and alternative engines. Prepared for Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory.

Research Report - October 01, 1989

The technical potential for electricity conservation and load management is much greater than the savings that U.S. utilities have achieved to date. Recent trends could narrow the gap between conservation potential and implementation. Load growth among several utilities that have aggressively...

Research Report - September 01, 1989

An examination of the potential for electricity savings and peak demand reduction in New York is contained in this in-depth study. Included are: analysis of electricity end use by sector and building type; estimates of the electricity and peak demand savings and costs for 62 conservation and...

Research Report - January 01, 1989

Existing U.S. HOV facilities are reviewed and critiqued in this study. An analysis of potential national fuel savings from extensive use of HOV facilities is also included.

Research Report - January 01, 1989

This paper discusses the results of a field survey of new commercial buildings that examined how current construction practice compares in lighting energy intensity to the proposed ASHRAE/IES standard. The conclusion is that the proposed standard will be easy to meet in most buildings....

Research Report - January 01, 1989

This is a concise overview of transportation energy use in the U.S. The paper includes an analysis of the historical changes in energy intensity by transportation mode. Trends in highway travel and light vehicle fuel economy, and factors that contribute to their change are discussed....

Research Report - January 01, 1989

In this, the first study of its kind, specific efficiency standards are proposed and analyzed for energy savings and cost-effectiveness. Sections also discuss lamp technologies, economics, and sales (by lamp and facility type). The first study of its kind. Prepared for Massachusetts Executive...

Research Report - January 01, 1989

This report responds to a widely referenced study by Robert Crandall and John Graham, which concluded that federal automobile fuel economy standards have caused increased highway fatalities. It critiques the study and concludes that improved automobile fuel economy and auto safety are not...
