    In several states, including Massachusetts, utility companies have an incentive to buy SRECs because state law requires utilities to generate a percentage of their electricity from solar energy and other renewable energy sources. In Massachusetts, that number is 11 percent; it will increase by 1 percent each year until it reaches 15 percent in.

Bernstein, Mark (Mark A.) HDU53 M InMassachusetts became the first state to adopt an above-code appendix to the "base" building energy code-the "Stretch Code" ( CMR Appendix AA).The Stretch Code, which emphasizes energy performance, as opposed to prescriptive requirements, is designed to result in cost-effective construction that is more energy efficient than that built to the "base" energy code.

The Low Income Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) provides eligible households with full-scale home energy efficiency services.

The program is funded by an annual grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, and administered by a network of local agencies, in many areas the same agency that administers the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP or Fuel Assistance) program.

Energy-efficiency measures create long-lived reduction in electricity use because it is built into the equipment, rather than being dependent on human behavior. According to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) reducing demand can be achieved by: installing equipment that is more efficient whenever it runs, e.g., the newest.

The Public Benefit of Energy Efficiency to the State of Massachusetts. The authors show that savings from commercial and industrial energy-efficiency programs have provided a positive return on utility investment, and they demonstrate benefits of energy efficiency for Massachusetts households, particularly for low-income households.

CLEAN ENERGY: A new report indicates nearlyclean energy jobs were lost in March and April, withof those coming from California alone.

(Los Angeles Times) SOLAR: A proposed megawatt commercial solar farm near Casper, Wyoming wins initial approval; the project would triple the state’s installed solar capacity if built.

The State Energy Data System (SEDS) is the source of the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) comprehensive state energy statistics. EIA’s goal in maintaining SEDS is to create historical time series of energy production, consumption, prices, and expenditures by state that are defined as consistently as possible over time and.

A home energy audit, also known as a home energy assessment, can help you understand the whole picture of your home's energy use. An audit can help you determine how much energy your home uses, where your home is losing energy, and which problem areas and fixes you should prioritize to make your home more efficient and comfortable.

4 SECTION 1: INTRODUCTIONSECTION 1: INTRODUCTION Tax appetite: Individuals and businesses can reduce the amount of taxes owed by using tax a tax credit to have any value, though, the individual or business must actually owe taxes.

If they are tax-exempt or merely lacking sufficient income to need tax relief, the tax credits have no Size: 2MB. The long-term goals were to strengthen energy efficiency and renewable energy infrastructure, reduce barriers to increasing efficiency and renewable energy, build professional capacity, educate the public, and lay the groundwork for transforming markets so that energy efficiency and renewable energy efforts would be sustained after the ARRA.

Energy efficiency workers are dispersed across the country, with workers employed in all but seven U.S. counties, according to a report from E2.

Init was responsible for some 20 percent of global primary energy consumption, while its closest competitor, China, used 15 percent (IEA, ).

But given the energy-security concerns over oil imports, recent volatility in energy prices, and the greenhouse gas emissions. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) released a toolkit to help municipalities voluntarily adopt higher energy efficiency standards for new and renovated buildings.

Called the NYStretch Energy Code –the toolkit shares best practice standards that NYSERDA developed with guidance from a member group.

Increased energy efficiency and a shift to lower carbon energy sources will help curb CO 2 emissions, but not sufficiently to reach a 2°C pathway.

Innovative technology solutions and supportive policies are still needed to achieve society’s emissions aspirations.
