Wisconsin utility companies take aim against solar power

Solar is not the sole potential threat to utility companies, says Steve Kihm, principal and chief economist for the Energy Center. Someday, consumers may also have small, natural gas turbines in their basements. Kihm suggests utilities might take a lesson from cable TV companies and offer a one-stop shop of products. See full story in the Wisconsin State Journal.

Improved practices to capture greater energy savings

The Energy Center is conducting a study for the Minnesota Department of Commerce to provide insight and tools to increase the effectiveness of utility efficiency programs to properly install and maintain heating and cooling equipment in Minnesota homes. The project includes both market research and a field study. Read more.

Training energy management catalysts

EDF engaged the Energy Center to design and facilitate a five-day boot camp for their Climate Corps program, an initiative that places MBA students in host organizations to identify energy-saving opportunities. We’re also providing technical advisory services to EDF’s Building Energy Initiative in Chicago. The program is featured in the summer issue of Sustainable Chicago.
