SEAD Member Economy Recent Achievements

Projected Savings from Energy Performance Standards since 2010

This analysis models the energy and emissions impacts of new and revised SEAD member economy minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) passed or implemented between from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2014. The study finds that these standards are projected to save over 700 TWh of electricity and 560 PJ of 2030 oil and gas. The electricity savings implies that roughly 235 fewer 500 megawatt power plants will be needed in the next 15 years relative to the case in which no action had been taken. Associated cumulative greenhouse gas mitigation from these regulations total more than 4 billion metric tons of CO2, or more than the annual emissions of the European Union.
