State and Local Policy Database

Every year, ACEEE ranks states on their energy efficiency policy and program efforts and provides recommendations for ways that states can improve their performance in a variety of policy areas. The State Scorecard serves as a benchmark for state efforts, encouraging states to continue strengthening their efficiency commitments as a pragmatic and effective strategy for promoting economic growth, securing environmental benefits, and increasing their communities’ resilience in the face of the uncertain costs and supplies of the energy resources on which they depend. The most recent State Energy Efficiency Scorecard rankings are presented below.
