Strategic Review of NEEP Residential Efficiency Initiatives
In the second half of 2004, the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships undertook a comprehensive review of its energy efficiency initiatives, with the goal of modifying its suite of initiatives to reflect developments in the efficiency product markets, as well as the evolving interests of its Initiative Sponsors. Synapse conducted a qualitative assessment of the existing residential initiatives, as well as several new and enhanced initiatives. The review included interviews with several key players in the relevant efficiency markets, assessed the potential for regional strategies, assessed the potential role for NEEP, and ranked initiatives according to several evaluation criteria. The results were presented in a paper entitled, "NEEP Strategic Initiative Review: Qualitative Assessment and Initiative Ranking for the Residential Sector." Project completed in October 2004.
