Life After Lighting: How Utilities Should Retool Their Energy Efficiency Portfolios (white paper)

Recently, there has been federal activity at the Department of Energy (“DOE”) regarding general service lighting (“GSL”), the Energy Independence and Security Act (“EISA”) efficiency standard, and the 45 lumen per watt backstop for GSL. This activity creates for a timely opportunity for MCR to revisit standards, lighting, and “Life After Lighting” for utilities and their EE programs. In a new, short paper we share:

  • What actions DOE has taken recently
  • The situation with respect to lighting within utility EE portfolios
  • A brief review baselines and standards, using lighting as an example
  • Recommendations and MCR’s framework for acting on them
