DivRev05 page 11 Energy Efficiency Program Effects Reported in Western Utility Resource Plans The majority of energy-efficiency program activity is projected to occur in California and the Pacific Northwest Note: results are not normalized for utility size
DivRev05 page 12 Impact of EE programs in reducing utility load growth (2004-2013) Utilities forecasted load growth without energy efficiency ranges from 1.1% to 2.4% annually The three CA utilities expect to reduce electricity growth to 75% from base case expectations) over coming 10 years!

A power plant is a building! 67% of oil used in U.S. goes to vehicles (54% in 1976) 71% of electricity goes to buildings (60% in 1976) Buildings elec is fastest growing element, 1976-2002: Multiple is 2.1 Spaghetti diagram for U.S., 2002
A larger fraction of electricity goes to buildings in rich countries Buildings Electricity = 100% Commercial and Residential + 15% Industrial + 10% Agricultural.
