This paper is the second paper in a series of MCR white papers focused on energy efficiency for natural gas utilities. The entire three-part series is focused on addressing two central questions:
(1) When natural gas prices are low, such as they are today, do energy efficiency measures exist that make economic sense for customers and utilities alike?
(2) Is there an approach to energy efficiency that makes sense for shareholders?
The first white paper in the series, Natural Gas Energy Efficiency: Finding the Win-Win, addressed the first question and made the case for energy efficiency from both the customer and utility perspective. This paper addresses the second question and explores an approach to creating shareholder value through energy efficiency. The third, and final, paper in the series, Natural Gas Energy Efficiency: Cost Effectiveness-Getting It Right, addresses the question, “How do we get there?”Download the second natural gas EE white paper
