Study: Mississippi needs energy efficiency improvements
Source: ACEEE press release
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A non-profit energy efficiency group has ranked Mississippi as one of the states most in need of energy efficiency improvement.
The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE)has released its 2010 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard. ACEEE is an independent and nonprofit organization that supports climate change and clean energy legislation.
Among the major state advances highlighted in the fourth edition of the ACEEE Scorecard are: a near doubling of state energy efficiency budgets from 2007 spending levels; the adoption or active consideration by over half the states of Energy Efficiency Resource Standards (EERS) that establish long-term, fixed efficiency savings targets; and a one-year doubling of the number of states that have either adopted or have made significant progress toward the adoption of the latest energy-saving building codes for homes and commercial properties.
California retained its No. 1 ranking for the fourth year in a row, followed by Massachusetts.
Mississippi and North Dakota ranked No. 50 and No. 51, respectively.
The Scorecard includes the District of Columbia.
