PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS... ENERGY: DEMAND-SIDE MANAGEMENT
from Energy Policy, 22(2), Feb. 1994:
"Stalled on the Road to the Market: Lessons from a
Project Promoting Lighting Efficiency in India," A.J. Gadgil
(Ctr. Bldg. Sci., Lawrence Berkeley Lab., 90-3058, Berkeley CA
94720), M.A. Sastry, 151-162. Gives reasons for the success of a
high-efficiency lamp leasing program that may be relevant in
other attempts to improve energy efficiency in developing
"Economic Analysis of Ilumex: A Project to Promote
Energy-Efficient Residential Lighting in Mexico," J. Sathaye
(Energy & Environ. Div., Lawrence Berkeley Lab., 90-4000,
Berkeley CA 94720), R. Friedmann et al., 163-172. An economic
feasibility study of a project to promote the use of compact
fluorescent lamps finds that it will bring substantial economic
benefits to Mexico, the utility and the customer. Expanding the
project would contribute significantly towards the planned
addition of generating capacity by the year 2000.
Biases in Cost-Efficiency Tests of Utility Energy Efficiency
Programs," S. Braithwait, D. Caves (Christensen Assoc., 4610
Univ. Ave., S. 700, Madison WI 53705), The Energy J., 15(1),
95-120, Jan. 1994.
Uses a conventional economic welfare framework to develop a
better method to measure the economic benefits and costs of DSM,
and compares it to the standard cost-effectiveness tests
generally used. Finds that the standard tests are incomplete.
Uses a numerical example to demonstrate the biases in the current
the Unprofitability of Utility Demand-Side Conservation
Programmes," F. Wirl (Inst. Energiewirtschaft, Tech. Univ.
Wien, Gußhausstr. 27-29, A-1040 Wien, Austria), Energy Econ., 16(1),
46-53, Jan. 1994.
Shows that strategic interactions between consumers and a
public utility render unprofitable demand-side conservation
programs that appear profitable by conventional criteria.
Rational consumers respond strategically to utility-sponsored
conservation programs by minimizing their own expenses for energy
of Net Savings from Energy-Conservation Programs," K.E.
Train (Dept. Econ., Univ. Calif., Berkeley CA 94720), Energy, 19(4),
423-441, Apr. 1994.
Nonrandom Samples in Voluntary Energy Conservation Program
Evaluation," M.T. Ozog (RCG Hagler, Bailly P.O. Drawer 0,
Boulder CO 80306), D.M. Waldman, The Energy J., 15(1),
