Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to investigate relationships between five energy efficiency programs and electricity intensities in the US commercial buildings sector. Design/methodology/approach: Regression methods analyze state-level secondary data from 2006 through 2009 to identify significant energy program drivers of electricity efficiency. Findings: Combined, the five programs studied account for approximately nine percent reduction in commercial electricity intensity. Practical implications: Outcomes will inform stakeholders’ decision-making regarding adoption or continuation of energy programs. Social implications: Electricity efficiency gains will help reduce negative environmental aspects and the present dependence on foreign oil. Originality/value: Very little research has considered the impact of multiple programs on commercial electricity efficiency within their complex implementation environment.
