DOE Publishes Methods for Estimating Energy Efficiency SavingsAlliance to Save Energy, April 22, 2013
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a series of protocols for estimating savings from energy efficiency programs titled Methods for Determining Energy Efficiency Savings for Specific Measures.
The protocols, developed in collaboration with leading technical experts, provide a straightforward method for evaluating gross energy savings for a number of the most common residential and commercial measures and programs offered by utility ratepayer-funded energy efficiency programs in the United States. They will also be useful for non-ratepayer energy efficiency programs. The Alliance to Save Energy serves on the Steering Committee for this effort.
