Energy efficiency continues to be the largest contributing factor to flat-lining electricity use.
Nice article appearing in Greentech Efficiency by Katherine Tweed on how the growth of electricity use has been falling for decades, but it will likely flatten out in coming years to an annual growth rate of less than 2 percent. The decline is due to many factors, from changing weather and economic recessions to the wider adoption of energy efficiency measures. But it is the latter that might explain the trend in recent years, according to a new study from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
