ANSI Seeks Input for Energy Standard

ANSI_logo-1212The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Energy Efficiency Standardization Coordination Collaborative (EESCC) is soliciting input regarding relevant standards, codes, guidelines and conformance programs that are available or under development, and what perceived gaps in energy efficiency standardization and conformance activities currently exist.

The EESCC has set up online forms to make it easy for stakeholders to submit information about relevant standardization documents (standards, codes, guidelines, and regulations), conformance programs, and standardization gaps. Submissions should consider the following questions:

  • What standardization documents or conformance programs related to the built environment currently exist and what are on the horizon?
  • What is the goal of the document or conformance program in question?
  • Who is the standardization document or conformance program intended to serve, and how is it being used in the market?
  • Is the document or conformance program being implemented at the state or federal level?
  • What building types does the document or conformance program apply to?

Submissions regarding major gaps, challenges, or untapped opportunities in the energy standardization landscape are also encouraged. Submitters are asked to explain why the gap is a priority, who the affected stakeholders are, and how the gap could be addressed by the public or private sector.
