CEE has compiled individual program descriptions and analyzed predominate trends for deploying HPHW programs across the US and Canada. Building upon the suite of residential program summaries updated annually, CEE is introducing an additional product category for Heat Pump Water Heaters. CEE program summaries look across efficiency programs to see how they are structured. In most cases, program summaries show how members and others are activating well-vetted and trusted CEE initiatives as a market transformation mechanism through their programs. In addition, members may request a program summary as research into a CEE exploration, to better understand how program administrators are viewing a savings opportunity.

In general, CEE program summaries are designed to provide an overview of voluntary programs for the promotion of energy efficient homes and products. They also communicate CEE member program details to key market players and stakeholders. Summaries include goals and objectives, incentives, duration, and program manager contact information. Residential committees assess the content each year and what data should be added. 

The table below provides handy links. Information is collected from members and compiled into formal spreadsheets available to the entire CEE membership through the CEE Forum. Abridged versions are also posted on the CEE public website and made accessible to other stakeholders.

About CEE
CEE is an award-winning consortium of efficiency program administrators from the United States and Canada. Members work to unify program approaches across jurisdictions to increase the success of efficiency in markets. By joining forces at CEE, individual electric and gas efficiency programs are able to partner not only with each other, but also with other industries, trade associations, and government agencies. Working together, administrators leverage the effect of their ratepayer funding, exchange information on successful practices and, by doing so, achieve greater energy efficiency for the public good.
