There are tremendous financial benefits to building owners and tenants who implement energy efficiency projects. In fact, energy efficiency improvements are generally much cheaper than any type of electricity generation project on a “levelized cost of energy” (LCOE) basis.
There is plenty to think about when you are buying a home — but little is more important than finding a home you can afford. Among the characteristics recent homebuyers are looking for in a home, energy efficiency is becoming increasingly important.
The energy world has been buzzing over the past week with the release of a new Accenture report that predicts significant effects on utility revenues due to distributed energy resources, like energy efficiency and solar energy.
The report, “State Electric Efficiency Regulatory Frameworks,” outlines policy developments that support utility investments in electric efficiency programs, including how several states have updated their existing regulatory frameworks for energy efficiency since July 2013.
