GLRPPR Sector Resource: An Energy Efficiency Primer for Governors

An Energy Efficiency Primer for Governors

This primer describes successful actions governors have taken to further cost-effective energy efficiency. It is intended to share examples for other states to consider as they develop their own efforts to capture the multiple benefits of energy efficiency.11 Table 1 (see page 4) summarizes examples of tools that governors have used, including lead-by-example measures involving state operations. Footnotes to the table include links to federal resources that may help states leverage existing energy efficiency efforts.
