Load shifting: the market potential for carbon and energy savings

November 10  •  Online course
Building code advancements continue to chip away at program baselines. Some of our tried-and-true energy savings measures come close to saturating the market. It's getting tougher – and more expensive - for utilities to meet savings goals. Utilities can prioritize measures that: shift time of use reduce overall energy use, and lower costs and emissions – all without disrupting the grid.  But when load shifting increases overall energy use, there’s a conflict with energy efficiency policy. Load shifting can also create a potential incentive for load building.
