Bringing energy efficiency to scale requires expanding the value of energy efficiency to consumers, improving the cost effectiveness to utilities, and reducing the cost of implementation by implementing automation. Home Energy Score helps homeowners and home buyers understand the value of energy efficiency investments. Adoption of data standards within or mapping existing data to standards allows programs to access Home Energy Score and other DOE supported calculation tools. These systems together expand the grid management value of energy efficiency, thereby enabling greater expansion of residential energy efficiency programs.
