CEE members can now find out how their peers address questions about evaluation planning. Review the Evaluation Planning Criteria report, now completed and posted to the CEE Forum, to see the types of criteria used to plan and implement program and portfolio evaluations.
In order to help members better understand how their own evaluation planning criteria and coverage compare to those of other jurisdictions, members developed a project scope, survey questions, and collected information on current evaluation planning criteria and coverage. A key objective is that sharing particular and aggregated results with the committee gives members the opportunity to justify their existing criteria or decide on and advocate for changes. An additional benefit is that this information serve as a resource for members seeking to develop evaluation planning criteria for the first time.
Key findings from the report include:
Program administrators work together at CEE to share information like this in structured, supported, meaingful ways. While states and provinces most likely will always have large differences in their goals for and approaches to energy efficiency, members have repeatedly found that working together at CEE expands their perspective on their own programs.
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.
