Group seeks participants to develop the energy efficiency standardization roadmap
By Paul O’Shea
With its potential to fuel job creation, bolster energy independence, and fuel the U.S. economy, energy efficiency has been attracting a lot of well-deserved attention in recent years. However, realizing its full promise will require a comprehensive national approach, as well as effective, strategic cooperation between the public and private sectors. To this end, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has launched the Energy Efficiency Standardization Coordination Collaborative (EESCC), which will assess the energy efficiency landscape and carry out the development of a standardization roadmap and compendium, identifying gaps in existing standards, codes and conformance programs, and working to support the adoption and implementation of new standards, codes, and conformance activities that will advance energy efficiency.
The first plenary meeting is January 22 -23, 2013 at the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel in Arlington, VA. You can register here for the plenary.
The EESCC also holds regular meetings for five working groups including:
- WG 1: Building energy and water assessment standards
(including diagnostic test procedures and health and safety testing)
- WG 2: Systems integration and communications
(encompassing communications between building automation/operation systems, equipment, and the electric grid)
- WG 3: Building energy modeling, rating, and labeling
(including whole building modeling from design to construction and rating and labeling for energy performance)
- WG 4: Evaluation, measurement, and verification
(encompassing EM&V; energy performance metrics; and standardized and portable data collection and reporting)
- WG 5: Workforce credentialing
(including standards for workforce training and certification programs, and workforce skills standards)
