Data Source
Energy Independence Act utility reports
Data Definition
Cost effective energy conservation reported by EIA complying utilities. Expressed as statewide average megawatts of conservation acquired annually.
Data Frequency
Annually with a two year compliance period. 2013 EIA (I937) update available May/June 2014.
Target Rationale
After about 1970 and prior to the Energy Independence Act in 2006 new generation resources in the Northwest were most often thermal resources and had GHG emissions associated with the electricity that they produced. By acquiring cost-effective energy efficiency utilities do not have to build new electricity generation resources and thereby do not increase electric sector GHG emissions.
