In @ENERGY's grid study, many reminders of the success of #EnergyEfficiency

The Department of Energy has released its long-awaited Staff Report to the Secretary on Electricity Markets and Reliability (informally, the “Grid Study”). Among its findings, the report describes several key impacts of energy efficiency on the electric grid. While the report charts little new territory, it is notable that it provides evidence of the powerful, positive role that energy efficiency plays in meeting grid reliability, resilience, and affordability goals. The study finds that flattening electricity demand is contributing to the retirement of power plants. That’s right, total U.S. electricity generation growth has stalled since 2005, growing at a compound annual growth rate of only 0.05 percent through 2015 after more than 30 years of growing at a rate of 2.7 percent. DOE calls out two significant impacts that flattening electricity demand has on power plant ret...
