Achievable Electricity Conservation Potential: The Role of Utility and Non-Utility Programs

Research Report U913


Steve Nadel


This review looks at utility demand-side management (DSM) results and plans; a study of the achievable conservation potential in New York State; and estimates of the energy savings available from market forces, building codes and equipment efficiency standards. It concludes that utilities can reduce projected electricity sales and peak demand by more than 20% by 2010. Prepared for the 5th National Demand-Side Management Conference.
