The latest book by Penni McLean-Conner, Energy Efficiency: Principles and Practices, is an outline for utilities, government agencies and power generators for educating consumers on conservation, better resource management, and a smaller carbon footprint. These techniques are not only of interest to the modern consumer, but also can maximize opportunities for demand-side management. Utility programs to reduce demand for electricity have been in existence since the late s following the two energy crises of that decade. Several pieces of federal legislation passed in the late s encouraged utilities to develop programs to promote energy efficiency andCited by: Handbook of Energy Economics and Policy: Fundamentals and Applications for Engineers and Energy Planners presents energy engineers and managers with analytical skills and concepts that enable them to apply simple economic logic to understand the interrelations between energy technologies, economics, regulation and governance of the industry. Sections cover the Book Edition: 1. This book provides an introduction to energy economics. It shows how to apply general economic theory as well as empirical and advanced econometric methods to explain the drivers of .
The world's energy system is nearly as complex as it is important. These books will help you to understand how we built our system -- and what it will take to overhaul it. Many of the energy efficiency programs available to homeowners and businesses across the United States are sponsored by utilities. A utility encouraging its customers to use less energy and reduce their monthly bills might seem counterintuitive at first glance, but energy efficiency measures have benefits for property owners and utilities alike. Utility spending on new energy efficiency programs and participants is mostly focused on residential and commercial customers. Most of the decrease in costs were from the amount spent on non-incentive programs, such as new metering and billing systems; however, the amount paid to customers as incentives to lower demand is influenced more by the.

Requirements for State and Utility Support of Low-Income Energy Efficiency Programs As amended by SB in June , Substantive Rule § states “ each utility shall ensure that annual expenditures for the targeted low-income energy efficiency program are not less than 10% of the utility’s energy efficiency budget for the program. The present study evaluates the impacts on GDP and employment of Geneva’s energy efficiency program portfolio éco21 which is operated by the local utility. Two programs aiming for electricity savings in the residential sector are analyzed: Eco-sociales targets social housing and Communs d’immeubles focuses on common spaces in buildings. Comprehensive, cost-effective energy efficiency upgrades can improve the energy efficiency of these properties by % and save $ billion in multifamily utility costs across the United States. With building owners and other multifamily stakeholders, utilities can shape their programs to better address the needs of this sector. 1. A requirement for utility energy efficiency programs, including annual energy savings requirements; and 2. A renewable energy portfolio standard, requiring 10% renewable electricity by Essentially, Michigan has followed that “Energy Efficiency and Renewable .
