State Energy Efficiency Embedded in Annual Energy Outlook Forecasts


In October 2012, Synapse reported our calculations for energy efficiency savings embedded in the Energy Information Administration’s Annual Energy Outlook (AEO) forecast, which incorporated data from the EIA Electric Power Annual 2011 and the American Council for an Energy-Efficiency Economy (ACEEE) 2011 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard. In a 2013 update to the report, Synapse summarizes our analysis to estimate the embedded energy efficiency percentages incorporating EIA data for 2012 (made available in 2013) and the ACEEE 2013 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard data for 2011.

Project completed in 2013.
