Policy & Technology: Fueling a Revolution in Demand-Side Management
Southern California Edison is the national leader in energy efficiency in terms of utilities. The company's efficiency measures from 2006-2009 have resulted in GHG emissions reductions equivalent to removing 500,000 cars from the road. SCE believes in a systems approach. There is no "silver bullet" new technology that will save us from ourselves; therefore, we must take an integrated approach, utilizing all available technologies in order to promote massive scale change and rebuild our energy consumption infrastructure. Not only must we employ demand side management technologies, but bold policy initiatives must be put in place to fuel innovation.
