Table 1 estimates the budget for electric utility-sponsored energy efficiency and load management programs in each southwest state during Total DSM funding more than quadrupled from about $29 million in to $ million in The latter value is equivalent to about percent of electric utility revenues in the six-state region.

Covers energy management, including the role of the energy manager, designing and implementing energy management programs, energy benchmarking, reporting, and energy management systems Technical topics cover efficiency improvement opportunities in a wide range of utility systems and process equipment types, as well as techniques to improve.

This presentation discusses national trends in electric utility energy efficiency programs for industrial customers, insights from investor-owned utilities, and national. Energy Efficiency and Load Management under Changing Electricity Market Conditions While some people predict the demise of electric-utility DSM programs, the data do not paint so bleak a.

Between andU.S. electric utilities spent $ billion on demand-side management (DSM) programs aimed at encouraging their customers to make investments in energy efficiency. Energy efficiency programs are less expensive (and faster to implement) than other new energy resources.

Utilities are constantly managing changes in energy demand. In areas where energy use is increasing, utilities often have to find new ways to produce energy for their customers.

However, building new infrastructure to produce electricity or. Program provides incentives to new or existing facilities for qualified energy efficiency upgrades. Load Management Program provides incentives for quickly decreasing or shifting your operation’s energy usage when notified during the summer peak period.

Energy efficiency direct loan programs – The municipality may elect to loan money to its electrical customers for the purpose of helping them afford energy efficiency retrofits on homes or businesses.

However, in so doing, the municipality likely would assume the full cost of financing and associated risk. term “conservation” was used to include energy efficiency, load management, and even solar thermal programs.

From the mids until recently, this gradually changed to “demand-side management” to distinguish it from the more traditional “supply side” activities. Demand-Side Management (–) — This file, compiled from data collected on both Form EIA and, for time-based rate programs, Form EIAS, contains information on electric utility demand-side management programs, including energy efficiency and load management effects and expenditures.

costs of many energy efficiency measures. Load management programs were emphasized in the early to mids. From the late s untilthe CPUC allowed the utilities to recover from ratepayers the costs of shareholder incentive mechanisms.

The terms and conditions under which the. We develop projections of future spending on, and savings from, energy efficiency programs funded by electric and gas utility customers in the USA, under three scenarios through Our analysis, which updates a previous LBNL study, relies on detailed bottom-up modeling of current state energy efficiency policies, regulatory decisions, and demand-side management and utility resource.

1 For the purpose of this chapter, portfolio refers to the collective set of energy efficiency programs offered by a utility or third-party energy efficiency program administrator.

2 Measures refer to the specific technologies (e.g., efficient lighting fixture) and practices (e.g., duct sealing) that are used to achieve energy savings. Abstract. This chapter introduces a hierarchical decision modeling framework for energy efficiency program planning in electric utilities.

The proposed approach focuses on assessment of emerging energy efficiency technologies and is proposed to bridge the gap between technology screening and cost/benefit evaluation practices.

Finally, the author reviewed three other integrated resource planning models.

• Under our medium case scenario, annual incremental savings from customer-funded electric energy efficiency programs increase from TWh in in the U.S. (which is about % of electric utility retail sales) to TWh in (% of retail sales).Author: Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

The Building Technologies Office conducts work in three key areas in order to continually develop innovative, cost-effective energy saving solutions: research and development (R&D), market stimulation, and building codes and equipment g with our partners on these activities results in better products, better new homes, better ways to improve older homes, and better buildings in.

Energy Efficiency Programs: Public Purpose Programs are administered by utilities, state agencies or other 3rd parties; and are paid for by ratepayers through “systems benefits charges” Utility programs are administered by the utility and paid for by ratepayers through their bundled rates Demand Response / Load Management Programs: provide.

policies which lead to an increase in energy efficiency. For example, California passed Rulemaking which created an Energy Efficiency Resource Standard for utilities. The goals of this rule called for programs operating over the – period to reduce electricity use by 23 billion kWh and peak demand by million kW by 1 The actual reduction in peak load reflects the change in demand for electricity that results from a utility demand-side management (DSM) program that is in effect at the time that the utility experiences its actual peak load as opposed to the potential installed peakload reduction capacity.

Energy Efficiency: Concepts and Calculations is the first book of its kind to provide an applied, systems oriented description of energy intensity and efficiency in modern economies across the entire energy chain.

With an emphasis on analysis, specifically energy flow analysis, lifecycle energy accounting, economic analysis, technology evaluation, and policies/strategies for adopting high.

programs are mandated by state governments and public utility commissions in most states. The programs seek to acquire energy efficiency resources from energy consumers, primarily to ensure that available energy efficiency resources are delivered to meet electricity or natural gas demand as a least-cost alternative to more costly supply resources.

2 DSM programs are designed to achieve two basic objectives: energy efficiency and load management. Energy efficiency is primarily achieved through programs that reduce overall energy consumption of specific end-use devices and systems by promoting high.

The program also offers a $ rebate credit per high efficiency electric water heater. New Bern also has an electrical load management program where customers may have load switches installed on their HVAC systems and/or their water heaters.

While participation in this program is voluntary, if the customer wishes to receive the aforementioned. Portfolio Standards / Energy.

Conservation and Load Management (C&LM) Fund established by the legisla-ture pursuant to Public Act which created an assessment of three mills per kWh on electricity sold to each end use customer of a publicly-traded electric dis-tribution company. The lifetime savings of energy efficiency funded through this assessment is expected to.
