An Energy Efficiency Registry: A Flexible and Transparent Way for States to Track and Report Energy Efficiency

In 2015, Tennessee, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, The Climate Registry (TCR), and the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO), along with supporting organizations E4TheFuture and APX, were awarded competitive funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop Principles and Operating Rules and a roadmap for the National Energy Efficiency Registry (NEER). The DOE award extends to December 2017. The NEER is intended to serve as a central repository that will allow the public and private sectors to (1) transparently track energy efficiency savings and (2) support the documentation of program compliance and voluntary tracking of sustainability and energy goals. The NEER will also be able to track energy conservation and other types of reduction efforts.
