Commercial and industrial efficiency programs saw a shift to midstream strategies in 2017, with administrators promoting efficient products by capitalizing on consumers’ existing relationships with stakeholders such as retailers and distributors. The number of advanced rooftop unit control program offerings has continued to increase, reflecting the technology’s savings potential and the fact that CEE is effectively spreading the word about advanced rooftop control programs, following a recommendation from the Emerging Technologies Collaborative. Program support for ductless minisplit air conditioners and heat pumps also continued to grow.
The CEE Compressed Air Program Summary, new in 2017 to accompany the new CEESM Industrial Compressed Air Systems Initiative, provides a baseline for future analysis of the initiative’s market impact—and shows the scope of the opportunity the Initiative is exploring.
All this information and more can be found in the new 2017 commercial and industrial program summaries from CEE. CEE has just released six additional program summaries for 2017, which, together with the two already published, combine data gathered from over 60 CEE member programs to give an up-to-date view of the current program industry landscape in areas such as air conditioning and heat pumps, commercial lighting, and compressed air systems. The in-depth and wide-ranging information compiled by CEE, which includes details on the design, duration, reach, and outcomes of each program, allows administrators, industry partners, and other stakeholders to make reliable assessments emerging trends in commercial and industrial efficiency.

For CEE members, who have access to the unabridged versions on the CEE Forum, program summaries are a thorough reference for the state of efficiency programs today. Members can examine program offerings similar to their own or explore the results of pioneering new approaches, with trusted CEE data collection allowing them to be confident about their comparisons. By providing an avenue for members to share information with their peers in the form of an easy-to-use resource, the CEE program summaries help members make informed decisions and speed up the spread of successful techniques.
The program summaries also demonstrate the ways that administrators are finding value in putting CEE initiatives into effect, multiplying individual program efforts to achieve market transformation. While serving as a current snapshot of the industry, the 2017 program summaries allow efficiency programs and other efficiency stakeholders to see the wide reach of initiative participation and specification use around the US and Canada. CEE publishes abridged versions of these resources online for all stakeholders to access, and manufacturers, retailers, and trade allies can use them to anticipate up-and-coming program strategies.
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.
