Energy efficiency delivers proven economic and environmental benefits. Efficiency resources help increase electric reliability and lower overall energy costs. Numerous studies have shown the abundant potential for utilizing energy efficiency as a least-cost resource. Despite these benefits, efficiency is often underutilized, and policies are often needed to overcome barriers to reach the full potential of energy efficiency.
