An Energy Efficiency Resource Standard (EERS) [1] is a policy requiring electricity and/or natural gas utilities to achieve specified levels of customer energy savings. Typically, EERS objectives are percentage savings of electricity or natural gas sales as compared to a business-as-usual case. Energy Efficiency Resource Standard. The. DSIRE glossaryprovides the following definition of an “energy efficiency resource standard”: “Energy efficiency resource standards (EERS) are state policies that require utilities to meet specific targets for energy savin gs according to a set schedule. Establish a federal energy efficiency resource standard (EERS) with savings targets for electric and natural gas utility energy efficiency programs. The federal EERS could also include savings from improved building codes and equipment efficiency standards, combined heat and power, and distribution efficiency. Energy Efficiency Resource Standards Updated June About DSIRE ® DSIRE is the most comprehensive source of information on incentives and policies that support renewables and energy efficiency in the United States.

Energy Efficiency Manual by Donald R. Wulfinghoff Energy Institute Press 1, pages illustrations index $ ISBN Energy Efficiency Resource Standards An energy efficiency resource standard (EERS) is a quantitative, long-term energy savings target for utilities. Under direction from this policy, utilities must procure a percentage of their future electricity and natural gas needs using energy efficiency measures, typically equal to a specific percentage of their load or projected load growth. The Building Energy Efficiency Standards improve upon the Energy Standards for new construction of, and additions and alterations to, residential and nonresidential buildings. Buildings permitted on or after January 1, , must comply with the Standards. The California Energy Commission updates the standards every three years. Energy efficiency resource standards (EERS) have been a key tool for delivering energy savings in states across the country. Now states are looking to their energy efficiency policies to do more.
