If it’s been awhile since you’ve visited NEEP’s Regional Energy Efficiency Database (REED) webpage, now’s the time! The REED webpage now features an easier-to-navigate interface with new video resources and an additional year of energy efficiency program data in the Master REED Workbook!

I promise it’ll be the easiest trip you’ll take this holiday season – and the only one filled with a bounty of program level energy efficiency data from 11 jurisdictions in the REED region covering program year 2011 to 2019.

Request the updated REED data by emailing Research and Analysis Manager Cecily McChalicher and you’ll receive a Master REED Workbook Excel file with energy efficiency program data from jurisdictions across the REED region. This data includes annual and lifetime electric and gas energy savings, demand savings, avoided air emissions, and program expenditures. Be sure to view the REED data alongside the complementary REED Supporting Information Report, which adds important context to the data by providing more detailed information about REED metrics, as well as describing reporting and evaluation practices in each jurisdiction.

On the REED webpage, you’ll find these two new REED video resources:

  • Exploring the Regional Energy Efficiency Database: Helpful for a new REED user who may not be familiar with REED’s content, this five-minute video provides an overview of the master REED Workbook’s content and functionality. Public Policy Associate Andy Winslow takes us through a tour of REED’s history and the annual program level energy efficiency program data that is now available by request from program years 2011-2019.
  • Regional Energy Data Dive #2: Using REED – Mid-Atlantic Spotlight: In this 10-minute video, Andy selects a use case scenario and manipulates the Master REED Workbook data to highlight a particular REED metric over time: net annual electric energy savings. Andy digs into program performance in the Mid-Atlantic region by creating pivot tables to show net annual electric energy savings in the region for all REED years, then normalizes the data by dividing by population to show per capita savings. Our goals through this video are to 1) show how REED data can be easily used to create compelling graphs, and 2) to make at least 20 people less intimidated by the thought of pivot tables.


To help you ring in 2022, NEEP will be releasing the new edition of the Energy Efficiency Snapshot in January, which will include the new program year 2019 data. This annual visually-focused report uses REED data to showcase Energy Efficiency by the Numbers in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States. The Snapshot includes various REED data analyses such as energy savings and expenditures in each REED jurisdiction over time. Policy highlights are also included to provide background context for the REED data.

In the meantime, have a fun, data-filled holiday season exploring the new REED resources!
