This U.S. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) study compliments the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)'s program to develop demand-side planning and implementation in the state of Maharashtra, India. The program, Energy Conservation and Commercialization (ECO-II), focused primarily on public buildings, municipal water pumping, street lighting and domestic water heating. The LBNL study provides an analytical rationale for the use of public funds to support end-use energy efficiency improvement.
