ANSI to Host Exploratory MeetingApril 17th, 2012 by DWM Magazine
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) of Washington, D.C., will host an exploratory meeting to find out whether there is a need for an ANSI Energy Efficiency Standards Panel on April 25. The purpose of the meeting is to gather input from stakeholders on areas where an ANSI standards panel would be most beneficial in coordinating a U.S. approach to energy efficiency standardization activities.
The meeting will be held at the FHI 360 Conference Center (8th floor, Academy Hall) in Washington, D.C.
In the first panel of the day, federal agency representatives from the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. Department of Defense will share their perspectives on energy efficiency priorities for the nation. The second panel will highlight key initiatives currently underway to promote energy efficiency, with speakers representing the Institute for Market Transformation, the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE), the U.S. Council for Energy-Efficient Manufacturing (U.S. CEEM), and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). Both panels will be followed by an open question and answer session.
A moderated open discussion will take place in the second half of the day to identify potential areas where standardization activities could help to advance a coordinated approach to energy efficiency initiatives.
