It's About Time: Energy Efficiency's Value Depends on Timing of Savings

Using electricity more efficiently benefits both consumers that install energy efficiency measures, from utility bill savings, and utility customers as a whole, from avoided utility system costs. Historically, quantification of efficiency's benefits has largely focused on the economic value of the energy savings. Far less attention has been paid to the peak demand impacts of efficiency, which make it more valuable and increase electric system reliability.

Call for Applications: Analytical Support for State Public Utility Commissions on Distribution Utility Planning and Distributed Energy Resources

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in partnership with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is initiating a three-year analytical support program for state public utility commissions (PUCs). PUCs will have access to in-depth analytical support from the national laboratories on topics related to distribution utility planning and regulatory, policy, programmatic, and technology assessments of distributed energy resources (DER).
