State Energy Plan

Energy Efficiency Roadmap

The Energy Office launched the South Carolina Energy Efficiency Roadmap initiative in October of 2019 to seize energy efficiency opportunities in the state. Facilitated by the Duke University Nicholas Institute, the Roadmap will review remaining energy efficiency recommendations from the 2016 Energy Plan, reassess according to current priorities, identify new opportunities, and develop next steps.

The first stakeholder workshop was held on November 18, 2019 with over 50 participants from a diverse range of organizations. During this meeting, attendees developed the following shared objectives to guide this effort:

Increase energy efficiency in South Carolina by:

  • Expanding the coordination, engagement, and education of thought leaders, policymakers, and all levels of consumers on energy efficiency issues.
  • Creating accessible and adequate funding mechanisms for cost-effective efficiency investments.
  • Employing equitable and transparent processes to reduce energy burdens for vulnerable communities by pursuing an equitable and just transition to an energy efficient economy.

Guided by an advisory committee, five working groups have been formed and are meeting monthly:

  • Efficiency in Buildings
  • Energy Equity and Justice
  • Utility Programs
  • Financing Mechanisms
  • Public and Nonprofit Entities

 The final Energy Efficiency Roadmap report is expected to be completed by October 2020.
