A Survey of Operation and Diffusion of US Energy Efficiency Programs-A Case Study in California-
概要
省エネプログラムの運営面で重要な3つの課題,(1)消費者への情報提供のあり方,(2)省エネ技術の市場普及過程を加味した対応,(3)費用対効果評価の実施および方法開発,について,米国カリフォルニア州の新たな取り組みを中心に紹介する。
[Abstract]
This report addresses practical operation and innovative attempts of energy efficiency programs in the US. Our focuses are threefold: (1) How utilities and regulators can effectively provide information about their energy efficiency programs with their customers, (2) An attempt of effective operation of energy efficiency programs by utilities and regulators that adapt to market transformation, and (3) How utilities and regulators should evaluate cost-benefit of energy efficiency programs and improve the scheme. To this end, we reviewed literature on energy efficiency programs in California and conducted interviews to electric power companies, gas companies and policy makers who were involved in those programs. The results are as follows: (1) Most of energy efficiency programs in the US have been implemented under Energy Efficiency Resource Standard (EERS) policies in each State in which energy utilities contribute to the programs as commissioned program operators. As of January 2011, 26 states implement EERS. (2) Energy efficiency programs in California are implemented in the largest scale in the US. Utility companies cooperatively operate those programs by establishing a common database to accumulate knowledge for further operational improvement of the programs. In addition, they attempt to use various innovative marketing approaches in a manner that they prepare for enhanced program lineups and effectively intervene into the program taking into account a market transformation. (3) Since those attempts are mutually dependent with overlapped effects, they are simultaneously applied to program operations under their interrelationship.
