Research Report U081


Dan York, Marty Kushler, and Patti Witte


In 2007 ACEEE conducted its second national review of exemplary energy efficiency programs. This project sought to recognize and profile outstanding utility-sector energy efficiency programs that help customers lower their energy costs and reduce their energy use through improved energy efficiency. An expert panel selected a total of 90 programs across 20 different program categories to be recognized from a large set of nominations received. This report describes the review and selection of these programs, as well as drawing out overall observations on characteristics of exemplary programs. A detailed appendix includes summary profiles of all 90 programs selected. Note: Links to the appendices are currently disabled. The appendix content related to low-income programs is available here.
