DOE and EPRI Cooperate To Increase Energy Efficiency



The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to strengthen cooperation on research, development, and deployment of technologies that increase energy efficiency


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to strengthen cooperation on research, development, and deployment of technologies that increase energy efficiency.

The MOU establishes a framework with the goal of satisfying the nation’s growing electricity needs. Keys to reaching this goal include improving energy efficiency and promoting the adoption of electricity demand-response programs to curtail energy use during peak periods.

Activities supported under the MOU include: conducting research on demand response and energy efficiency in buildings; developing guidelines and methods to calculate emissions and emission reductions; creating digital devices to link the electrical grid and building-control systems; and analyzing utilities’ catalogues of energy-efficient technologies.
