Power Markets: Your Signature Can Help
You are invited to take a simple, “drama-free” and non-partisan policy action. Now is a great time to build on the strength of markets in our U.S. electricity grid. Home energy efficiency projects (delivered as residential services) may be combined/aggregated as a powerful market player. As such they may bring additional business and benefits to home energy pros.
Looking at the big picture, for those focused on energy efficiency this is a crucial moment to keep energy efficiency from being shut out of a potentially bright future as a market player. The only extra work for you is to take a moment to add your name.
To many in the electric power sector, energy efficiency is known as a distributed energy resource (DER). For the first time, last November the feds proposed a definition of DER, a key competent of the modern power grid. In that definition specific resources were named such as storage and electric vehicles, but energy efficiency--the most affordable DER technology--was overlooked. We will simply ask that efficiency be included in their list of examples. If it is added now, it will assure market inclusion in the future.

We hope the new administration’s emphasis on markets and business will enable clean energy markets and large-scale energy efficiency to thrive. This Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) proceeding* is a common-sense avenue to drive success.
FERC’s proceeding can help bring clean energy into markets. Many people will submit comments by the 2/13/17 deadline. E4TheFuture drafted comments we plan to submit. Please join your industry colleagues already on the record.
