ACT NOW: One Week Remains to Nominate Working Group Co-chairs for the ANSI Energy Efficiency Standardization Coordination Collaborative


Get Involved Today: Membership Open to All Stakeholders

One week remains to nominate working group co-chairs for the newly formed American National Standards Institute Energy Efficiency Standardization Coordination Collaborative (EESCC). Nominations for qualified candidates to help lead the development of a standardization roadmap assessing energy efficiency in the built environment are being accepted through Friday, October 5.

Energy efficiency holds enormous promise to advance the nation's energy, economic, and environmental goals. Yet, despite being a vast and cost-effective resource, its full potential remains untapped. To help coordinate a national approach to energy efficiency for the United States, ANSI has launched the Energy Efficiency Standardization Coordination Collaborative, and is seeking relevant experts to take part in the activity.

Get Involved: Join the EESCC Today
Membership in the EESCC is open to all stakeholders interested in advancing energy efficiency for the United States.

Participation in the EESCC provides companies and organizations the ability to help determine priorities on standardization issues impacting energy efficiency and the innovation and deployment of emerging services and technologies.

Learn more at Access the EESCC participation form.

A multi-phased effort, Phase One of the roadmap will focus on five issues areas within the built environment, with each to be addressed by a dedicated working group:

1. Building energy and water assessment standards (including diagnostic test procedures and health and safety testing)

2. Systems energy modeling, integration, and communications

3. Building energy rating and labeling

4. Evaluation, measurement, and verification (encompassing EM&V, energy performance metrics, and standardized and portable data collection and reporting)

5. Workforce credentialing (including standards for workforce training and certification programs, and workforce skills standards)

Through October 5, ANSI is accepting nominations for working group co-chairs and other leadership opportunities within the EESCC. Working group co-chairs will serve on the EESCC steering committee and help to provide strategic direction for the EESCC. The contributions of the working group co-chairs will be given recognition in the standardization roadmap and other relevant deliverables, as appropriate.

Full details on the roles, responsibilities, and estimated time commitments for EESCC working group co-chairs are outlined in the nominations form. All nominations must be accompanied by a letter of corporate support and a biographical statement, and must be submitted by October 5, 2012, to [email protected].

Save the Date: The first full plenary meeting of the EESCC is targeted for November 7-8, in the Washington, DC, area, with final dates and details to be confirmed. For more information, visit

More about the EESCC:
The EESCC is led by two co-chairs from the public and private sectors:

Benjamin Goldstein
Energy efficiency workforce development and standards coordinator
Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, U.S. Department of Energy

John Tuccillo
Vice president of global industry and government alliances at Schneider Electric
President and chairman of the board, The Green Grid

The EESCC is intended to raise awareness of individual activities being advanced by many prominent organizations with the objective of moving energy efficiency forward, and is not intended to displace or duplicate work that is currently being done. The EESCC will not develop standards, nor will it assign responsibility for their development.
