ACEEE webinar: Next-generation energy efficiency resource standards

Start/Stop Date:
01 Aug 2019
American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE)
Webinar 1.00 - 2.00 p.m. EDT
Focus Areas:
Energy efficiency resource standards
Type of Event:

Energy efficiency resource standards (EERS) have been a key tool for delivering energy savings in states across the country, driving 80% of all utility savings reported across the United States in recent years. Now states are looking to their energy efficiency policies to do more. New approaches to EERS policies can help states meet aggressive climate goals, lower costs, give utilities the flexibility they need to meet demand, encourage beneficial electrification, and deliver benefits like bill savings and healthier homes to those with the greatest need. In our new report, ACEEE will highlight the approaches leading states including Hawaii, New York, Massachusetts, Minnesota, and California are taking to evolve their energy efficiency resource standards to align with these goals.

Commissioner Jennifer Potter of the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission and Janet Joseph of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) will join report authors Rachel Gold and Annie Gilleo for an instructive webinar on Thursday, August 1st as they discuss the state of energy efficiency resource standards, the drivers of policy change in their states, and the approaches they are implementing to maximize the benefits of energy efficiency.
