The 2020 strategic planning process is particularly important for NEEA.  With
both natural gas and power prices at historically low levels, continued weakening of electricity demand, rising utility cost pressures, and renewable portfolio standard mandates driving oversupply of power with a very low marginal cost, it is a challenging time for energy efficiency.    

This document is based on secondary research, and does not represent either the NEEA Board of Directors or NEEA staff’s point of view.  Rather, it is meant to be a starting point for discussions about our shared future business environment – and the strategies that will be necessary for utilities and NEEA to be successful within it.  

NEEA staff posted this document, and its companion for electric energy efficiency  to inform our Strategic Planning Survey, which closed in Feb 2017.

Thanks so much!

As NEEA begins our strategic planning for 2020, we want to make sure we’re capturing what’s going on in the larger market. This Natural Gas Situational Assessment is a big picture look at what external forces and trends are likely to impact utilities and energy efficiency in the near future. Please read this, and its companion for electric energy efficiency, please take some time to share your thoughts in our Strategic Planning Survey. Thanks!
