Utah Clean Energy's energy efficiency program lies at the core of advancing a new clean energy economy for Utah and the West. Through this multi-faceted program, Utah Clean Energy works with partners to dramatically increase energy efficiency, and reduce energy consumption, across the state.
Utah Clean Energy works in collaboration with partners to meet Utah's energy efficiency goal to increase energy efficiency 20% by 2015. We work to achieve this goal through advocating for increased energy efficiency through state and local government policy, utility regulatory intervention, partnering with Utah’s building industry, and working with Utah’s colleges, universities and other workforce stakeholders.
We estimate that by 2020, Utah businesses, residents and industries can save over 11,000 GWh per year through energy efficiency (see graph below). This increase in energy efficiency would provide much of our future energy demand through "negawatts", while maintaining high quality services, creating local jobs, saving money and finite fossil fuel resources, and increasing the cost-effectiveness of many forms of renewable energy.
