Election Results Bring Both Uncertainty and Hope for Energy Efficiency

What do the 2016 election results mean for energy efficiency? American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), November 10, 2016 Now that the hard-fought 2016 election is over, I think it is useful to consider its impact on energy efficiency policy. No doubt, a lot of uncertainty remains because of President-elect Donald Trump’s lack of

Measuring the Potential for Sustained Energy Efficiency Savings

Valerie Eacret, ERS, for Zondits As with any nonrenewable resource, there are limits to efficiency as a resource. Steven Nadel’s recent paper explores the potential for energy efficiency to provide consistent, sustained savings. The good news is that a 1% load reduction appears to be feasible to at least 2030 – and potentially 2050 –

China Scores Higher than USA in ACEEE’s International Energy Efficiency Scorecard

Gita Subramony, ERS, for Zondits Every year the ACEEE releases a scorecard that ranks the top 23 energy-consuming countries based on energy efficiency policies and performance. They gather data to evaluate metrics on buildings, industry, transportation, and overall national energy efficiency policies and efforts. According to ACEEE’s analysis, Germany takes the gold medal, with Japan
