At a time when states in the Forum region are making unprecedented investments in energy efficiency to meet a range of policy objectives, the need for consistency and transparency for energy efficiency is more important than ever in order to build understanding and credibility of efficiency as a resource. The intent of these Guidelines, which include recommended state-level reporting templates and several process recommendations, is to provide for consistent definitions and the reporting of electric and natural gas energy-efficiency program energy and demand savings and associated costs, and their emission and job impacts across the region. If the Forum states can collectively successfully implement these Guidelines, the region would benefit from a common “currency” of reported energy efficiency data to support multiple state and regional energy and environmental policies/objectives.
