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 –
