Last Chance to Reserve Hotel Rooms for EESCC Plenary Meeting - Book and Register Now!


Input Requested from All Stakeholders on Energy Efficiency Standardization Landscape

Only one week remains to reserve hotel rooms for the January 22-23 plenary meeting of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Energy Efficiency Standardization Coordination Collaborative (EESCC) at the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. A block of rooms at the Sheraton is available for Monday, January 21, and Tuesday, January 22, 2013, at a discounted rate of $209 per night, plus tax; however, this price is only available until Wednesday, January 9, 2013. Please note that this is a very busy week in DC and attendees are urged to make their reservations as soon as possible; availability at the hotel cannot be guaranteed after the room block is filled.

Hotel reservations can be made via the EESCC group webpage.

Attendees may also take advantage of this discounted rate three days before and after the meeting dates; contact ANSI's meeting and events manager to take advantage of this extended offer.

Admission to the plenary is free of charge for both current and prospective EESCC members; all attendees must register here in order to take part.

Join the EESCC

ANSI encourages experts on energy efficiency-related issues and members of the greater standardization community to join the EESCC. Broad and varied participation is essential to ensuring that important decisions on the future of energy efficiency are made through consensus and collaboration.

As part of the its efforts to set down a roadmap for energy efficiency within the built environment, the EESCC is now soliciting input regarding relevant standards, codes, guidelines, and conformance programs that are available or under development, and what perceived gaps in energy efficiency standardization and conformance activities currently exist. The EESCC has set up online forms to make it easy for stakeholders - including current EESCC members and organizations in the ANSI federation, as well as other individuals and groups in the larger standards and conformance community and beyond - to submit information about relevant standardization documents (standards, codes, guidelines, and regulations), conformance programs, and standardization gaps. Submissions should consider the following questions:

  • What standardization documents or conformance programs related to the built environment currently exist and what are on the horizon?
  • What is the goal of the document or conformance program in question?
  • Who is the standardization document or conformance program intended to serve, and how is it being used in the market?
  • Is the document or conformance program being implemented at the state or federal level?
  • What building types does the document or conformance program apply to?

Submissions regarding major gaps, challenges, or untapped opportunities in the energy standardization landscape are also encouraged. Submitters are asked to explain why the gap is a priority, who the affected stakeholders are, and how the gap could be addressed by the public or private sector. The forms can be accessed below:

The database of all submissions will be available to EESCC members in the EESCC Document Library.

About the EESCC
The ANSI Energy Efficiency Standardization Coordination Collaborative (EESCC) is a cross-sector, neutral forum and focal point for broad-based coordination among energy efficiency activities involving or impacted by standardization (i.e., standards, codes, conformance activities) and regulations. The objective of the collaborative is to assess the standardization landscape, and carry out the development of a standardization roadmap for energy efficiency within the built environment.

The EESCC is led by two highly-esteemed co-chairs from the public and private sectors: Benjamin Goldstein, energy efficiency workforce development and standards coordinator in the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and John Tuccillo, vice president of global industry and government alliances at Schneider Electric, and president and chairman of the board of The Green Grid.
