On August 15th, NCBPA’s Ryan Miller presented a preview of the association’s upcoming “Energy Efficiency Potential Report” findings to the Energy Policy Council during its third quarter meeting. The EPC “advises the governor and General Assembly on legislation and rulemaking that addresses domestic energy exploration, protects the environment and encourages economic development.” The EPC recently released their 2018 biannual report that includes 26 energy efficiency recommendations, far more than any other category and nearly all matching NCBPA’s Energy Efficiency Policy Roadmap released in the fall of 2017.
In the spring, NCBPA requested energy efficiency as a topic for a future Council meeting and worked with NC Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to identify topics and presenters, which included:
- Ryan Miller of NCBPA: “Quantifying North Carolina’s Benefits from Increased Investment in Energy Efficiency”
- Jen Weiss of Duke Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and NCBPA Partner: “Prioritizing Energy Efficiency in North Carolina’s Next State Energy Plan”
- Joe Cullen of Home Performance Coalition and NCBPA Partner: “Modernizing the State’s Regulated Utility Energy Efficiency Cost Effectiveness Testing Protocols”
- Michael Stowe of Advanced Energy and Dr. Steve Terry of NCSU, NCBPA Members: “Opportunities for Industrial Energy Efficiency in North Carolina”
