DNREC to hold public workshop on energy efficiency
evaluation, measurement and verification (EM&V) regulations
DOVER (April 28, 2016) – DNREC, in conjunction with Delaware’s Energy Efficiency Advisory Council, invites stakeholders to attend an upcoming workshop to give comments on proposed new regulations for the evaluation, measurement and verification (EM&V) of energy efficiency projects. Two workshop dates are scheduled:
6 p.m., Tuesday, May 3, DNREC Auditorium, Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901
6 p.m., Tuesday, May 10, DNREC Division of Waste & Hazardous Substances New Castle office, Conference Room A, 391 Lukens Drive, New Castle, DE 19720
The Energy Efficiency Advisory Council (EEAC) was established to create and implement programs for consumers that encourage energy efficiency and wise energy use practices across the state. As utilities make their plans for providing energy-efficiency solutions, DNREC is developing a set of regulations that will outline methods for evaluating projects and measuring their effectiveness, known as EM&V regulations.
The Council has set an ambitious goal for energy-use reduction in the state, aiming for a 2.1 percent reduction of Delaware’s total energy use over three years.
The public is encouraged to attend the workshops to learn more about the regulations, ask questions and provide input.
Interested parties may obtain a copy of the draft regulations online at EM&V Regulations or by emailing Emily.StClair@state.de.us. To submit written comments regarding the proposed regulations, email Emily St. Clair or send comments to:
