|Energy Efficiency Potential by Sector
The State’s total energy consumption (residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation sectors) is projected to increase 15% from 2010 to 2030. This profile describes the ability of nine energy policies to accelerate the adoption of cost-effective energy-efficient technologies in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors of Tennessee. Altogether, these policies offer the potential to reduce Tennessee’s energy consumption by approximately 11% of the energy consumed by the State in 2007 (260 TBtu in 2030) (Figure 4). With these policies, Tennessee’s projected energy consumption could remain level through 2015, after which a modest growth in demand would occur. For complete policy descriptions, refer to Energy Efficiency in the South by Brown et al. (2010).
