Utilities like the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power are making active strides toward reducing energy consumption, both through improved technology and by promoting behavioral changes. The Los Angeles City Council agreed to allocate $267 million over two years for energy efficiency efforts at the LADWP in 2012. How can utilities best spend funds like these to maximize impact and savings for commercial, residential, industrial, and lower-income users? Where will efficiency funds be invested and which markets will they influence? What are the best opportunities for financial partnerships and collaborative ventures in the coming decade?
