Energy Futures Group provides expert consulting services informed by national and international experience in the design and evaluation of energy efficiency, renewable energy, and other clean energy programs and policies.
We have assisted in the development or engaged in the review of numerous leading programs, including 8 of the Top 10 states in the ACEEE State Energy Efficiency Scorecard, and several countries in Europe. We know what works, what does not and why.
EFG creates regulatory or legislative policies, administrative structures for program implementation, incentives, cost-effectiveness tests, equipment efficiency standards, and building energy codes.
We develop and critically review integrated resource plans, both through modeling and other forms of analyses; demand-side management plans; distribution system plans, with particular emphasis on analysis of non-wires alternatives; strategic electrification plans; and carbon emission reduction plans.
We develop and critically review costs and savings estimates (e.g. Technical Reference Manuals), as well as forecast market potential for energy efficiency, renewable energy and strategic electrification measures and programs.
We design and critique programs with an emphasis on cutting edge strategies that are necessary to achieve deep levels of participation, savings, and clean energy deployment.
Our staff assists with annual program goals and budgets, selection and oversight of implementation contractors, presentation of programs to key trade allies, and technical trouble-shooting.
