|NEEP Provides Guidance to Efficiency Programs Considering a More Involved Role in Minimum Efficiency Standards|
On our Blog:
Hint: efficiency standards! 2014 is shaping up to be an active year at the Department of Energy (DOE) when it comes to federal appliance efficiency standards. According to their own agenda, DOE plans to conduct rule-making activity to develop new or revise existing efficiency standards for over a dozen products "covered by the Department.
Appliance Standards have developed a proven track record for over 20 years which provides a fact-based foundation to respond from. [More]
NEEP's Appliance Efficiency Standards Policy Project is a regional coalition of consumer, environmental and energy efficiency groups advocating for the enactment of state and federal energy efficiency standards for a range of commercial and residential products.
With the underwriting support of most of the energy efficiency program administrators in the region, from support provided by our supporting foundations and in concert with key allies, NEEP's Appliance Standards Project has been a model for regional partnerships to advance energy efficiency policy.
Appliance Efficiency Standards present one of the most effective ways to accelerate energy efficiency. Appliance standards bring energy and cost savings to consumers, relief to our strained energy system and significant reductions of harmful emissions to our planet.
The new standards, and their impact on the market, have some consumers feeling confused. NEEP has partnered with the LUMEN Coalition (LUMEN stands for Lighting Understanding for a More Efficient Nation) to develop educational resources for consumers. Visit the LUMEN Coalition's new website, www.LUMENnow.org, for more information.
