Energy Efficiency Trends in the Electric Power Industry (2008-2018)
March 2020
This report explores how energy efficiency (EE) programs are a win-win, helping customers to save energy and electric companies to reduce their carbon emissions. In 2018 EE programs saved 211 TWh of electricity, avoided the generation of 149 million metric tons of carbon dioxide, and saved enough electricity to power 26 million U.S. homes for one year. IEI believes that EE expenditures and savings will continue to grow over the next decade as long as participation in EE programs remains an easy option for customers.
