ANSI Collaborative Seeks Participants to Help Develop Energy RoadmapDecember 11th, 2012 by DWM Magazine
Bolstering energy independence is not an easy task and that is why the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is seeking strategic cooperation between the public and private sectors. To this end, 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, identify gaps in existing standards, codes and conformance programs, and work to support the adoption and implementation of new standards, codes and conformance activities that will advance energy efficiency.
ANSI encourages experts on energy efficiency-related issues and members of the greater standardization community to join the EESCC. The group will hold its inaugural plenary meeting January 22-23, 2013, at the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel in Arlington, Va. Participation in the January session is free for all EESCC members.
The EESCC has also begun holding regular web meetings of its five working groups which include: building energy and water assessment standards; systems integration and communications; building energy modeling, rating and labeling; evaluation, measurement, and verification; and workforce credentialing.
