According to the ACEEE's 2019 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard, an increasing number of states are adopting ambitious clean energy goals and energy-saving rules for buildings, appliances, and vehicles.  This 13th annual report identifies the leaders – Massachusetts and California; the most-improved states, notably Maryland; the states that lost ground such as Kentucky; and those lagging behind, including North Dakota and Wyoming.

The 50-state Scorecard reveals key statewide strategies for increasing state commitment to energy efficiency, even in places where it had traditionally been overlooked.  Nevada, New Mexico, Washington, New York, and Maine passed 100% clean energy goals, along with plans to increase efficiency investment.

 Also, a record number of states adopted new efficiency standards for a variety of products and equipment, some in direct response to the federal rollback of standards for light bulbs. Many states have also worked to support vehicle efficiency by promoting electric vehicles and adopting California’s vehicle emissions standards.
