David Ribeiro, Tyler Bailey, and Fernando S. Castro-Alvarez


This updated version of the Local Energy Efficiency Self-Scoring Tool lets you score any community’s energy efficiency efforts using the metrics from ACEEE's 2017 City Energy Efficiency Scorecard. The brief user guide shows you how to use the application to evaluate community-wide initiatives, government operations, and buildings, utility, and transportation policies. You can also compare your community’s scores against average city scores from the Scorecard and learn about successful energy practices from Arlington County, VA and Oakland, CA. By cataloging strengths and identifying areas for improvement, the Self-Scoring Tool can help you create an efficiency roadmap to reduce energy waste in your community.
