Among the many benefits ascribed to energy efficiency is the fact that it can help create jobs. Although this is often used to motivate investments in efficiency programs, verifying job creation benefits is more complicated than it might seem at first.

It then proposes an analytically rigorous and tractable framework for program evaluators to use in future assessments.
