So We Think We Understand Energy Efficiency!

Arshad Mansoor
Vice President, Power Delivery & Utilization
Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)

Abstract
Energy efficiency is an important resource for achieving a low carbon future. Traditional energy efficiency measures have focused on reducing the use of electricity through conservation measures and increasing the efficiency of end use appliances and processes. Most of the existing utility or state administered energy efficiency programs are focusing on energy audits, rebates for efficient lighting and HVAC technologies in addition to an active customer education and awareness campaign. This seminar will engage the attendees to think broadly when defining energy efficiency and look into non-traditional energy efficiency opportunities that in some cases could be more cost effective and more practically achievable than traditional measures.
