Energy Scenario Planning: Efficiency Investments Lower Costs


A recently released study shows investments in energy efficiency lower electricity costs better than do other scenarios modelled.  The study, “Four Paths to Ohio’s Energy Future,” was commissioned by Advanced Energy Economy. The study looked at four scenarios for investment in Ohio energy systems, and projected costs for 2030.  A scenario heavy in energy efficiency investments lowers costs 1.71 cents/kWh from a base case without efficiency investments.  10/27/2016
