May 18, 2017 — E4TheFuture, coordinator of the National Efficiency Screening Project, announces publication of the National Standard Practice Manual (NSPM).
This first edition of the NSPM provides a comprehensive framework for cost-effectiveness assessment of energy resources, with a focus on energy efficiency. The manual describes the principles, concepts, and methodologies for sound, balanced assessment of resource cost-effectiveness.
The NSPM is applicable to all types of electric and gas utilities and jurisdictions where energy efficiency resources are funded by – and implemented on behalf of – electric or gas utility customers. The manual is intended for use by parties involved in identifying the full range of efficiency resources whose benefits exceed their costs, to inform which resources to acquire to meet a jurisdiction’s specific goals, standards, and/or targets.
