The National Energy Efficiency Registry (NEER) is collecting standardized and transparent data on the savings associated with energy efficiency, with an eye towards broadening its use, standardizing more projects, improving measurement and verification of savings, and ultimately boosting investments in demand reduction.
Energy efficiency is a growing resource, increasingly recognized as an inexpensive yet effective source of capacity. But even as more states set efficiency targets and incorporate it into planning, a dearth of data on projects, standards and savings, has slowed widespread adoption.
Now, a diverse group of states and clean energy stakeholders has released a set of principles and operating rules that will underpin the United States' first web-based registry of energy efficiency project data. The idea is to create a system capable of tracking energy projects and savings, while helping to quantify what results might be expected from new projects.
