A published critique of energy efficiency last month was narrowly focused and conceptually flawed, said Martin Kushler, a Senior Fellow at the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). The academic paper by researchers at the University of Chicago and the University of California, Berkeley concluded that the costs of residential energy efficiency investments are double the benefits. ACEEE’s concern is that the study will be misused, leaving low-income families with less access to important programs that help reduce their utility bills.
