The report found a near doubling of state energy efficiency budgets from 2007 spending levels and the adoption or pending adoption by more than half the states of Energy Efficiency Resource Standards, which aim to reduce or flatten electric and gas load growth using energy efficiency.
Nearly half of the states (24) have adopted and adequately funded an Energy Efficiency Resource Standard (EERS), which sets long-term energy savings targets and drives investments in utility-sector energy efficiency programs.
Among the major state advances highlighted in the fourth edition of the ACEEE Scorecard are: a near doubling of state energy efficiency budgets from 2007 spending levels; the adoption or active consideration by over half the states of Energy Efficiency Resource Standards (EERS) that establish long-term, fixed efficiency savings targets; and a one-year doubling of the number of states that have either adopted or have made significant progress toward the adoption of the latest energy-saving building codes for homes and commercial properties.
Some states are extending this concept to energy efficiency through the creation of an Energy Efficiency Resource Standard (EERS), also known as an Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard.
Several of these programs served as the foundation for energy efficiency programs prior to the passage of the Illinois electric and natural gas energy efficiency resource standards.
