Expanding its traditional ranking of states on utility program spending, ACEEE issued a new and more comprehensive scorecard that rates state accomplishment on multiple efficiency policy and program initiatives. These include utility program spending, Energy Efficiency Resource Standards (EERS), appliance efficiency standards, building codes, combined heat and power, mass transit spending, state facility and fleet management, and vehicle fuel economy. The top 10 ten states in the Scorecard are Vermont, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Oregon, Washington, New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Minnesota.
