Financial Impact of Energy Efficiency on Stakeholders under a Combined Energy Efficiency and Renewable Electricity Standard

Local, state and federal policies that jointly promote the generation of electricity from renewable technologies and the pursuit of energy efficiency are expected to help mitigate the detrimental effects of global climate change and foster energy independence. In this presentation, research will be presented that examines the financial impacts on various stakeholders (e.g., ratepayers, utility shareholders, society) from alternative compliance strategies with a Combined Efficiency and Renewable Electricity Standard (CERES) using a case study approach for utilities in Kansas. Specifically, we will illustrate how and why stakeholder (financial) preferences for alternative compliance strategies differ and what can be done to better align these preferences in an attempt to gain a consensus approach that benefits all stakeholders.
