To design and test new standards for measuring the savings from energy improvements that meet the requirements of private lenders and investors. Although verification programs currently exist, they are not uniform and are designed to meet the needs of engineers rather than finance professionals. By better identifying the requirements of the investor community and establishing uniform guidelines, EDF seeks to make evident the business case to open the flow of private capital to bring energy efficiency projects to scale nationwide.
