E4TheFuture Advocacy: How we help on a national level
With the goal of advancing E4TheFuture’s mission, we focus on a range of initiatives. These include:
National Standard Practice Manual. We coordinate the National Efficiency Screening Project. We helped to develop and are disseminating a manual for assessing the cost-effectiveness of energy efficiency. This document — generally applicable to all types of distributed energy resources — provides sound, unbiased guidance for developing a jurisdiction’s cost-effectiveness test.
Faces of Energy Efficiency. Don’t miss this exciting initiative! Follow @FacesOfEE on Twitter as we reveal the magnitude of energy efficiency jobs in America.
National Energy Efficiency Registry. We serve on the project team developing a National Energy Efficiency Registry (NEER). The NEER will allow public and private sectors to transparently track attributes associated with energy efficiency initiatives. It will help states reduce emissions cost-effectively, and will support using efficiency to improve economic competitiveness and air quality. The E4TheFuture policy lead role comprised drafting the NEER Principles and Operating Rules. This effort encompasses all project types (including, but not limited to, residential efficiency).
Other Work. E4TheFuture engages strategically on other initiatives; for example, we co-funded a report, Weatherization and Home Performance: Recommendations For Mutual Success and Collaboration. See the press release.
