The State Energy Efficiency Scorecard

December 16, 2020
facebooktwitterlinkedInemail

The 15th edition of the ACEEE State Energy Efficiency Scorecard provides an update on state energy efficiency policies and programs that save energy, advance equity, and produce environmental and economic benefits. The scorecard ranks states in six policy areas: utility programs, transportation, building energy codes, state initiatives, industrial energy efficiency, and appliance standards. This year’s scorecard has an expanded focus on equitable energy efficiency policies that reduce energy burdens for low-income and disadvantaged households and historically underserved communities. Top finishers in this year’s scorecard include California, Massachusetts, New York, Vermont, and Maine, which was the most-improved state in 2022. The state scorecard shows that energy efficiency is a key resource, with utilities saving 26.6 million MWh of electricity nationwide in 2021.
