Going Green and Getting Regulation Right: A Primer on Energy Efficiency

Regular price $89.00 $0.00

Going Green and Getting Regulation Right: A Primer on Energy Efficiency responds to the rising interest in energy efficiency and demand-side management programs by exploring the important lessons that can be learned from earlier mandated conservation efforts and will be a valuable resource for regulators, utilities, intervenors and other policy makers.

This valuable resource uses a vast database of results from utility programs throughout the nation over the past 15 years to address these matters quantitatively. These analyses are complemented with a thorough qualitative and institutional review of the differences found across the nation and over time.
