This IEE report focuses on U.S. electric efficiency results based on information from 195 organizations – 172 electric and combined utilities, 10 non-utility energy efficiency (EE) administrators, and 13 organizations that declined to release their data at the organizational level.
In mid-2011 the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE), in coordination with the Institute for Electric Efficiency (IEE) and the American Gas Association (AGA), collected industry-wide data on ratepayer-funded energy impacts, expenditures, and budgets for energy efficiency programs from utility and non-utility administrators in the U.S. and Canada.
MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:
* U.S. ratepayer-funded electric efficiency budgets totaled over $6.8 billion in 2011, a 25 percent increase from 2010 levels.
* Electric utilities are by far the largest providers of EE in the U.S., with utility budgets comprising 84 percent of the total ratepayer-funded electric efficiency budget nationwide.
