The Value of Demand Reduction Induced Price Effects (DRIPE)

By Chris Neme, Paul Chernick

Energy efficiency programs reduce utility bills, reduce emissions of multiple pollutants, and reduce the overall cost of delivering electricity services. Measuring and considering the full spectrum of benefits delivered by energy efficiency is pivotal to capturing all cost-effective efficiency resources. One such benefit—the Demand Reduction Induced Price Effec...
