Standardization Roadmap: Energy Efficiency in the Built Environment - Progress Report

Share this Post:


In June 2014, the ANSI Energy Efficiency Standardization Coordination Collaborative (EESCC) published the Standardization Roadmap: Energy Efficiency in the Built Environment, paving a strategic path forward for a more energy- and water-efficient built environment. Developed by over 160 public- and private-sector experts from more than 50 member organisations and 4 federal agencies, the roadmap established a national framework to which U.S. industry, government, standards developing organisations (SDOs), and others can look to enable greater energy and water efficiency capabilities for the nation’s buildings.


This report highlights known progress to date to close the 109 standardisation gaps outlined in Chapters 1-4 in the roadmap. As Chapter Five, Workforce Credentialing, outlined overarching recommendations to advance workforce credentialing rather than specific standardisation gaps, updates on Chapter Five are not included in this report.


For ease of comparison, this report provides updates by chapter, following the section numbering from the roadmap. Progress is reported only where known activities are underway to address gaps identified in the roadmap. For each gap discussed, the original roadmap text is provided, followed by the progress report update.


Appendix A summarises all gaps from Chapters 1-4 in the roadmap, including those for which there is no known progress at this time, so that readers may easily identify opportunities to take action on gaps.
