Consensus process provides alternate approach to energy efficiency standard development

July 21, 2015 Source: stock photo Last month a group of industry stakeholders, and energy efficiency and environmental advocates, along with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), proposed . The working group represents an alternate approach to energy efficiency standards development within DOE. Formed in 2013 by DOE’s Appliance and Equipment Standards Program, the . […]

Efficiency moderates effects of higher electricity prices under proposed Clean Power Plan

June 11, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Republished June 11, 2015, 9:30 a.m. to clarify expected electricity generation differences in certain regions. EIA’s of the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan (CPP) rule finds that electricity prices are expected to rise. However, efficiency and price-induced conservation moderate the projected increase in consumer electricity […]

Energy efficiency improvements have largely offset effect of more, larger homes

February 18, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Drivers of Household Energy Consumption The growth in residential energy use has slowed to below the rate of household growth, meaning that per-household energy consumption has decreased. Analysis of EIA’s conducted since 1980 shows how improvements in energy efficiency reduced energy intensity enough to offset more than […]

Following a court challenge that caused a previous proposal to be sent back for further analysis, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a new proposed rulemaking […]

LED light bulbs keep improving in efficiency and quality

November 4, 2014 Source: EIA, based on Department of Energy’s Note: Reflects Lighting Facts database through November 3, 2014. Improvements in lighting technology for light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs have increased lighting efficiency, or efficacy, as well as color quality. In September of this year, several manufacturers released ENERGY STAR®-qualified bulbs surpassing 100 lumens per watt. […]
