The ACEEE State Energy Efficiency Scorecard Progress Report summarizes how states advanced their energy efficiency policies and programs in 2021. Given the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on energy efficiency programs in 2020, ACEEE decided to forgo a formal Scorecard ranking in favor of an unranked and unscored end-of-year progress report that still recognizes the latest developments in energy-saving state policies. We use data vetted by state energy officials to summarize progress in utility programs, transportation, building energy codes, and appliance standards. The report shows that energy efficiency is a key resource in many states, with utilities spending approximately $7.6 billion nationally in 2020 for efficiency programs nationwide and saving 26.6 million MWh of electricity
