2020 RCP Workbook Presentation Submitted to the Council
As a region, over the last five years, the Northwest has saved 1039 aMW of energy as a result of energy measures. This total represents utility program savings, NEEA reported savings, momentum savings, and savings from codes and standards with an adjustment for double and under counting. The chart to the right illustrates how these regional savings compare to the five-year conservation goal of 1115 aMW set by the Seventh Power Plan. Below that is a break out of annual efficiency achievements as compared to annual Seventh Plan milestones.
2019 was the first year the region was not on track with an annual milestone, although overachievement in prior years made up the difference. 2020, however, is the first year where the region fell behind the cumulative milestones. While Plan milestones have increased across the action plan period, regional savings have remained flat to declining. In order to meet the Seventh Plan's action plan goal of 1400 aMW, the region will need to achieve significant efficiency in 2021.
