2009 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard
How does your state rank in terms of investment in energy efficiency and adoption of supportive policies? Each year, American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE), issues a scorecard which aims to recognize leadership among the states and identify best practices. The scorecards examines six state energy efficiency policy areas: utility-sector and public benefits programs and policies; transportation polices; building energy codes; combined heat and power; state government initiatives; and appliance efficiency standards. While some of these are specific to regulated utilities and may not affect public power decision-making, they are nevertheless important to understanding the overall market your programs will operate in.
