The Kentucky Public Service Commission found in a November 14 order that two utilities in the state should commission a study that examines the potential benefits of industrial demand-side management programs.

In its Reforming the Energy Vision proceeding, the New York Public Service Commission has undertaken an ambitious initiative to improve the New York electricity system through better incorporation of distributed energy resources (DERs): distributed generation, distributed storage, energy efficiency, and demand response.

The Vermont Public Service Board (Board) cited a Synapse report extensively in its July 9 Order in the 2014-2034 Vermont Energy Efficiency Plan Proceeding, and adopted Synapse’s recommendation that the state’s Energy Efficiency Utilities (EEUs) collect and report better data on customer participation so as to better understand repeat participation.

Today the EPA released AVERT (Avoided Emissions and Generation Tool), an open-access tool built by Synapse to allow states and other stakeholders to estimate the hourly emissions benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy policies and programs. AVERT allows non-expert users to measure emissions of CO2, SO2, and NOX mitigated by state or multi-state programs.
