Identifying Equity-Centered Tracking Metrics

Equity-related tracking efforts, whether in the energy efficiency space or beyond, are important ways to better understand current practices, identify gaps, see trends over time, and provide accountability. Traditional energy efficiency program metrics focus on energy and demand savings, which perpetuate program design that focuses on cost-effective programs that deliver guaranteed savings. The focus on costs and savings disregards concerns about equitable impact and access. Equity-focused tracking metrics help set appropriate and achievable equity-related goals to undo these past disparities.
