MIn the pursuit of new and more significant energy efficiency savings, ACEEE has published several reports outlining some of the innovative ways utilities can help their customers reduce energy waste through program design and new technologies. We have also started looking at the relationship between energy consumption and other natural resources such as air pollution and water use.
