Technical Assistance for the Regional Evaluation, Measurement and Verification (“EM&V Forum”)

Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships
Project completed November 2014

On behalf of the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships, Synapse prepared a guidance document for utility regulators on several key principles of energy efficiency cost-effectiveness screening. The key issues addressed in the study include: the alignment of efficiency screening with energy policy goals; accounting for non-energy impacts; choosing the appropriate discount rate; and accounting for environmental compliance costs. The guidance document was adopted by the NEEP Regional Evaluation, Measurement and Verification Forum.
