Identifying Disparities with an Equity Gap Analysis

An equity gap analysis can help regulators and program implementers understand inequities in access to the benefits of energy efficiency programs. A gap analysis is an important step in understanding how disparate impacts appear in program implementation. Such assessments can help policymakers and program implementers understand how energy efficiency measures have been inequitably deployed in the past and also inform future program design. Further, by conducting these studies, jurisdictions can ensure the resources dedicated to help alleviate energy inequities will be geared towards solutions that are more impactful.
