Programs promoting energy efficiency for utility customers, for grid infrastructure, and wherever it else applies in the utility business is one of the truest win-win operations in the sector. Customers always strive to find ways to reduce energy use and thus bills, and utilities see increased efficiency as a cost-efficient and quick pathway to ensuring supply and demand remain in striking distance of each other without the costly headache of new generation. New technological solutions and innovative leadership continues to open new energy efficiency doors, so the Energy Efficiency Group on Energy Central seeks to keep you fully and completely informed.

The big headlines this week are coming from Glasgow at COP26 (see Energy Central’s special hot topic tag for all related content here), and Norbert Vasen astutely points out how energy efficiency must be a part of this story in the climate fight, at COP26 and beyond.
