On April 25, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will host an exploratory meeting to examine the need for an Energy Efficiency Standards Panel (EESP) to develop a standardization roadmap for energy efficiency initiatives in the United States.


ANSI officials attribute the possible formation of the panel to their expectation that energy efficiency efforts will grow dramatically over the next 10 years. According to ANSI, the April 25 meeting will help define the scope and areas of focus for a potential standards panel in this area with reference to 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.


"Energy efficiency is a cross-cutting issue that applies to all industry sectors, and I encourage all stakeholders to participate in the April 25 exploratory meeting," says S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI president and CEO. "The Institute has a long and successful track record in bringing diverse stakeholders together in a neutral forum to develop consensus-based solutions for national and global priorities. ANSI stands ready to provide standards coordination in this critical area as well."


The event will be held in the Washington, D.C., metro area, and
