ANSI meeting on energy efficiency standards

New York City, March 27, 2012 — On April 25, the American National Standards Institute, coordinator of the private-sector-led U.S. voluntary standardization system, will host an exploratory meeting to examine the need for an Energy Efficiency Standards Panel to develop a standardization roadmap for energy efficiency initiatives in the U.S.

Energy efficiency forms a core component of the nation’s sustainable energy policy to promote energy security, a cleaner environment, and spur job creation and innovation. Consumers, the government and industry alike are sounding the call for energy efficient technologies and programs to support America’s clean energy future — an economic and social imperative for the nation.

Over the next ten years, energy efficiency efforts are expected to grow dramatically, with a significant number of diverse initiatives already underway in the public and private sectors.

The April 25 meeting will help define the scope and areas of focus for a potential standards panel in this area vis-àƒ -vis the standards, codes and conformance programs needed to advance the nation’s energy efficiency agenda.

If formed, the goal of the ANSI Energy Efficiency Standards Panel would be to develop a standardization roadmap that would define a coordinated U.S. approach to energy efficiency standardization activities and help foster innovation and advance the market for energy efficiency technologies.

ANSI standards panels have successfully championed standards-based solutions for key issues and technology areas, from electric vehicles and homeland security to healthcare information technology, nanotechnology and identity theft protection.
