The Potential for Electricity Savings through Behavioural Changes, 2006-2026: Residential and Commercial Sectors

Date Published: November 20, 2007     Document Type: Market Research Report, Report

The Residential sector behavioural potential covered a range of behaviours in seven end uses as follows: Space Heating and Cooling, Lighting, Domestic Hot Water (DHW), Refrigeration and Freezers, Appliances, Computers and Peripherals, TV and Entertainment, and Small Appliances. For the Commercial sector, the report considered 15 behaviours in the following five categories: Lighting, Heating and Cooling, Refrigeration, Plug Loads (including computers), Whole Building (including use of the elevator).The findings confirm the existence of significant potential cost-effective electrical energy savings from behavioural changes in both the Residential and Commercial sectors.

Using Regression Discontinuity Models to Understand Market Transformation (Abstract Only)

Date Published: January 1, 2003     Document Type: Conference publication

During the past ten years, China has become one of the largest consumers as well as the largest exporter of lighting products. The efficiency of lighting products made in China thus has significant implications for lighting efficiency, electricity consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and sustainable development. The China Green Lights program invested some 300 million yuan to transform the domestic lighting market by increasing the supply of and demand for efficient lighting products. This study uses regression discontinuity models combined with engineering algorithms to evaluate the impact of the China Green Lights program. (Abstract only)

Interim Process Evaluation of the Efficient Lighting Initiative: 1999-2001 (Abstract Only)

Date Published: January 1, 2003     Document Type: Conference publication

This paper presents the interim process evaluation results of the Efficient Lighting Initiative (ELI), as presented in a report to the International Finance Corp, a division of the World Bank, in 2002. The paper describes how the ELI program is being implemented in seven countries (Argentina, Peru, South Africa, Czech Republic, Latvia, Hungary, and the Philippines) and summarizes key evaluation findings from program start-up and first-year activities. The purpose of this evaluation is to provide ELI management with feedback as to the operation of the program and how the various groups involved with implementation perceive ELI. (Abstract only)

Natural Gas Furnace Market Assessment

Date Published: August 1, 2005     Document Type: Market Research Report, Report

This report is a market assessment of natural gas furnaces in Oregon. The objectives of this study are to develop a market model showing the shares of mid and high efficiency furnaces sold in the new construction and replacement markets; to estimate furnace pricing or incremental pricing of efficiency upgrades; to determine economics to the customer; to determine trends and barriers affecting the markets for efficient furnaces; and to highlight program opportunities and recommendations.
