Capitalizing on Energy Efficiency
It’s time for the energy efficiency industry to get what it pays for
While it is two to three times more cost-effective to save a kilowatt than generate one, energy efficiency (EE) has fallen short of its potential in contributing to a more modern and clean electricity system. Whether the goal is upgrading energy infrastructure or reducing greenhouse gas emissions, EE remains the most cost-effective solution and should be a primary option for utilities, regulators, and investors. However, traditional procurement models have failed to monetize EE’s true value.
