Janine Migden-Ostrander highlighted the benefits, best practices, and most effective rate designs for achieving energy efficiency gains in this presentation to the Mitigation Action Implementation Network. As part of its Third Asia Regional Dialogue, Ms. Migden-Ostrander discussed the multiple benefits of energy efficiency, including managing the overall cost of electricity, promoting economic development, creating jobs, and other societal benefits. As a least cost option, she recommended treating efficiency as the first resource option. When combined with appropriate rate designs, it can reduce costs and help manage the resource portfolio.
