The New Leaders of the Pack: ACEEE’s Fourth National Review of Exemplary Energy Efficiency Programs

Research Report U1901


Seth Nowak, Marty Kushler, and Patti Witte


ACEEE has reviewed exemplary customer-funded electric and natural gas utility programs every five years since 2003. For this edition of the report, we solicited nominations nationally and analyzed them in collaboration with an independent expert advisory panel. We ultimately selected 53 models worthy of emulation in 14 categories. A two-page profile of each exemplary program includes a program-at-a-glance table, features and accomplishments, lessons learned, and a table of performance data.
