Calculating the Nation’s Annual Energy Efficiency Investments

 

Today ACEEE released a new report, Calculating the Nation’s Annual Energy Efficiency Investments, that looks at spending in 2010 (the latest year for which data is available) in the U.S. on energy efficiency goods and services such as energy efficiency program expenditures, sales of ENERGY STAR products, investments in building efficiency improvements, repairs and new construction, trends in manufacturing energy use and investments, and sales of efficient vehicles.  

 

We found that the incremental cost of advancement in energy efficiency (e.g., upgrading from an average refrigerator to an ENERGY STAR model) was $72-$101 billion in 2010, and has delivered about three times the level of new energy services as conventional energy supply ($170 billion).
