IOU % in Budget Increase vs. % in Energy SavingsGOAL: Develop ideas for how the utilities can achieve greater energy savings at a lower cost
Discussion Topics: • Why are the budget increases not proportional to Energy Savings Increase? • DRA Notes: The cost per unit of energy saved should go down, not up in 2009
Discussion Topics: • Some measures yield greater energy savings per dollar expensed. Do the IOUS take this measurement into account when delivery/proposing such measures? • Are the EUL of each measure taken into account when calculating the expected energy savings of each measure? • Are some measures preferred over others because of their energy savings benefits? Are there “priority” measures? • If the Education budget was reduced, where should these funds be focused to yield long term enduring savings with the greatest energy savings per dollar spent?
