Today’s release of the proposed Clean Power Plan under EPA section 111(d) underscores the role of energy efficiency as our nation’s least-cost resource.
“Demand-side management rightfully earns its place as a critical part of a system-wide approach to reducing emissions. But significant barriers like opaque and siloed data have inhibited its potential and caused some to question its measurability. Technology that combines smart grid data, EE upgrade data, weather and more enables a ‘measure as you go’ approach and brings a much more robust to energy efficiency quantification. Modern approaches like this will be critical in powering the world by energy efficiency.” -Aaron Goldfeder, Co-founder and CEO of EnergySavvy
