Energy Efficiency

Clean technologies also include the range of energy efficiency (EE) measures and tools. The cheapest and cleanest electricity is that which is never produced, otherwise known as the negawatt. A negawatt is energy not consumed, either by using more efficient appliances and machines, or through better management and controls, or potentially through demand response efforts.

The opportunity for cost-effective energy efficiency savings remains relatively untapped, and ACE NY works with our member organizations and companies to promote more aggressive efficiency programs in New York. This also includes work in the Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) proceeding to find mechanisms to incentivize energy efficiency or build markets for efficiency that do not rely on these other mandatory programs.
