American Efficient is one of the largest energy efficiency aggregators in the United States. We operate projects in collaboration with major manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to facilitate the adoption of energy efficient products and aggregate, measure, verify and deliver their energy savings for wholesale energy markets.
American Efficient acts as a bridge between manufacturers, retailers, installers, and owners of energy efficiency resources and the utilities and markets that can use those resources to meet America’s energy needs.
Our team creates partnerships with the world's largest home improvement retailers and manufacturers. We acquire the exclusive contractual rights to the energy savings associated with eligible energy-efficient products such as lighting products, showerheads, appliances, and envelope sealing for spaces.
Through extensive technical analysis, literature reviews, and metering studies, we quantify the energy savings and develop Measurement & Verification protocols, as required by the wholesale energy markets.
American Efficient participates in forward wholesale capacity market auctions, creating financially-binding commitments. This enables more clean, reliable, sustainable and affordable energy.
Residences, while not the predominant building type in the US by total square footage, contain many, fairly easy-to-implement opportunities to add value to the grid through efficiency and demand response.
Insulation, weather-stripping and efficient glazing all contribute to reducing heating/cooling load.
Second only to heating and cooling as a source of load in the typical home
Those with the most advanced potential for reducing energy consumption, “plug load”
Significant impacts can be gained from replacing incandescent lighting with high efficiency lamps and fixtures utilizing CFLs, LEDs etc.
At least half of the energy consumed in the average American house
Commercial building energy consumption by source varies much more than in residential buildings, based on geography, size and use.
Significant impacts can be gained from not only replacing older fluorescent ballasts with high efficiency LED fixtures but also by utilizing occupancy and ambient light sensors as well as de-lamping and providing task lighting.
The primary source of load in commercial buildings, includes ventilation, dehumidification and often re-heat of chilled air.
Not only contribute plug load but also cooling load.
Additional revenue for bottom line, sales force training, or to drive further stocking of efficient products. American Efficient partnership helps offset the risk of stocking new efficient products, investing in sustainability efforts, and any other business needs to sell energy-efficient products
Savings from reduced energy use, lower energy prices
Increased grid reliability, sustainability and affordability and less need for capital intensive generation infrastructure or transmission upgrades
Reduced carbon emissions
"All customers (including non-participating customers) benefit by having more cost-effective EE in the market [and] from an improved load forecast by avoiding over-procurement of capacity resources.”
“Energy efficiency bid into capacity auctions lowers clearing prices, reducing capacity costs for customers in these RTOs.”
“Energy efficiency is the first fuel"
