Northeast Region Innovating to Accelerate Energy Efficiency in 2013

energy efficiency northeast roundupThe Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions are seeing unprecedented savings in electricity and natural gas use, thanks to a combined commitment to invest over $2.5 billion dollars in energy efficiency through 2013, according to NEEP’s second annual Regional Roundup of Energy Efficiency PolicyThe report examines overall policy trends and suggests which states are leading and lagging in capturing cost-effective energy efficiency to help meet energy demand as cleanly and cheaply as possible.

While looking at the region as a whole, The Roundup also provides summary and analysis of some of the biggest building energy efficiency successes and setbacks in individual states from Maine to Maryland, including key energy efficiency laws and regulations, and changes in funding levels for energy efficiency programs.

The Roundup is intended to give policymakers, efficiency advocates, program administrators and other stakeholders a comparative view of efficiency progress and pitfalls across the region. Along with state-level highlights, this paper reveals regional trends and shared challenges in harnessing the potential of energy efficiency to meet today’s pressing energy and environmental challenges
— controlling energy costs, improving system reliability, strengthening the economy, growing jobs, improving public health and curbing emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants.

Our region as a whole continues to lead the nation in efficiency. How is your state doing among the pack?
