Analysis of Florida Energy Efficiency and Distributed Generation


Synapse and Optimal Energy assisted Sierra Club by providing expert testimony on Florida’s achievable energy efficiency (EE) and distributed generation (DG) potential, as well as the policies that are needed to promote these important resources. For both EE and DG, Synapse (a) provided a technical assessment of the economic potential; (b) provided a benchmarking analysis comparing the EE and DG resources that Florida utilities are planning to implement relative to utilities in other Southeastern states; (c) critiqued the utilities efficiency screening process; (d) critiqued the utilities resource planning process; and (e) recommended policies to help promote the development of EE and DG in the current docket and in the future.
