Energy Efficiency Opportunities - Representative Assessment Guide

Date

This guide was developed to assist companies with undertaking an energy efficiency assessment on a sample that is reasonably representative of their population of similar sites, fleets, technologies or processes. This type of assessment is also referred to as a representative assessment (RA). The purpose of the guide was to assist in determining whether an RA was appropriate for a corporation’s circumstances as well as provide guidance on how to conduct an RA to the level of accuracy required by the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program.

Functional skills for an energy efficiency assessment

Date

This document details roles and skills required to undertake, report on and implement the findings of rigorous energy efficiency assessments for large energy users. It is the result of research primarily based around the assessment requirements of the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program. The findings also have relevance for companies participating in state government energy assessment programs and other companies wishing to improve their energy efficiency performance.

Energy Savings Measurement Guide

Date

This guide provides corporations with technical advice about estimating and measuring energy efficiency opportunities, presenting results to decision-makers and tracking and reporting the opportunities. It also provides guidance on how to identify and estimate the wider business benefits and costs from implementing energy efficiency opportunities. It was designed for corporations to meet the requirements of the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program but can be used by any corporation seeking to improve the accuracy of their energy savings estimates and measurements.
