Research Report IE132 - May 16, 2013
Energy program administrators are sponsoring the placement of dedicated energy managers at industrial facilities to overcome the obstacles to energy optimization.  These pilot efforts seek to accelerate the pace and volume of industrial efficiency initiatives. This report describes five...
Research Report T132 - May 10, 2013
In order to understand the potential to save energy through U.S. freight system efficiency improvements, we compare the findings of five studies (three U.S. transportation sector studies and two global supply chain studies) of freight energy savings opportunities. Generally, the supply chain...
Research Report E138 - April 30, 2013
Utility energy efficiency programs generate significant financial benefits to Ohio’s customers in four primary ways: (1) they help reduce customer demand for electricity, thereby directly reducing monthly electricity bills for participants; (2) they reduce customer demand, or load, which...
Testimony - April 23, 2013
ACEEE’s research demonstrates that Ohio’s energy efficiency resource standard has been and will continue to be economically beneficial to the state. Ohio’s utilities are generating energy efficiency savings at a levelized cost considerably lower than the levelized costs of new...
Research Report A131 - April 22, 2013
Several jurisdictions in the United States have recently adopted residential energy use disclosure policies.  Residential energy use disclosure is a promising policy option for a number of reasons, including (1) how it might motivate people to address valuation of energy-efficient homes in...
Testimony - April 22, 2013
New Jersey used to be a leader in energy efficiency (it ranked #8 in the 2007 ACEEE State Energy Efficiency Scorecard), but it has been steadily slipping to the middle of the pack (#16 in the 2012 Scorecard).   Energy efficiency is generally less expensive and more labor intensive than new...
Research Report T131 - April 4, 2013
Several regions with large vehicle markets are developing regulatory programs to reduce the fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of heavy-duty vehicles. At the same time, manufacturers increasingly are developing global product platforms for the heavy-duty market. This offers an...
Research Report E137 - March 27, 2013
CNT Energy and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) examine the factors that contribute to effective energy efficiency program design for multifamily buildings.  The report provides an introduction for utilities and other energy efficiency program administrators to...
Research Report E136 - March 18, 2013
The United States has made much progress in energy efficiency in recent decades. U.S. energy use is approximately half of what it would have been if we had not improved our efficiency over the past 40 years. Still, there are large, cost-effective opportunities to increase energy efficiency much...
Research Report B131 - March 14, 2013
The Deep South Ethnographic Project at the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has been a multi-sited, qualitative research project looking into everyday energy practices across the sectors of buildings, agriculture, and transportation. The Behavior and Human Dimensions...
