BENEFIT-COST METHODOLOGY FOR EVALUATING ENERGY CONSERVATION PROGRAMS

This report develops and presents for the layman the basic concepts of benefit-cost analysis for conservation, and specific procedures for computing conservation benefits under different economic conditions. In addition, it contains a discussion of this methodology as it applies to two major conservation options, the auto efficiency standard and home insulation. Using existing data, preliminary benefit-cost estimates are developed, and data requirements for improved estimation are discussed.
