The thirteenth Energy Modeling Forum (EMF) working group, comprised of some 50 members from business, government, and academia met four times between September 1992 and March 1994 to discuss energy conservation. This group defined the important issues, developed the study plan, analyzed the results, and summarized the key findings. Proprietors of 10 different models of energy equipment efficiency and demand used their respective models to simulate a half dozen different scenarios based upon standardized assumptions. The comparison of model results guided the larger group’s discussion about important issues and differences of view that influence energy conservation. The group also integrated other research and analysis on the nature of the “gap” that contributed to an understanding of the policy issues. The executive summary (volume 1) and the complete report (volume 2) for EMF 13 research group on Markets Energy Efficiency are available below.
Volume 2 of Markets Energy Efficiency was published by The Energy Policy Journal and is available here.
