Attainable changes are headed our way. A decrease in energy consumption rates is now in the foreseeable future as long as the United States follows current energy efficiency programs. The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) released an analysis this week concluding that the United States could potentially decrease its energy consumption growth by 22 percent in the next 20 years. The analysis took into account the existing market patterns, funding complications and the United States’ increasing energy consumption.

According to the EPRI’s press release, the study used projections of growth in electricity usage by residential, commercial and industrial sectors collected by the Energy Information Association (EIA).

Arshad Mansoor, vice president of Power Delivery and Utilization for EPRI, explains that the institute’s study will provide vital information for policymakers, utility companies and regulators when it comes to making important decisions about how to make effective changes in our energy systems.
