In 2006, the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island were leading the nation in energy efficiency (EE) savings at 1.2% of annual electricity sales. By 2014, leading states were achieving nearly double that, with Massachusetts and Rhode Island seeing first year savings of 2.5% of annual electricity sales. This presentation explores what the next quantum leap in efficiency savings could be. In a webinar held on January 21, 2016, Chris Neme of Energy Futures Group (EFG) shared the findings of a study he wrote with EFG co-author Jim Grevatt, demonstrating how states can achieve persistent savings of 30 percent of load over ten years. This quantum leap in efficiency cannot be brought about without major policy changes. These include increasing ratepayer funding of EE, making EE more profitable for utilities, aligning efficiency goals with long-term objectives, and creating new models for acquiring efficiency. A low-cost resource that also provides benefits to the utility system, society, and participants, energy efficiency is always a prudent choice.
