The first quarter of 2018 saw some important milestones for the alliance. In February, the Regional Portfolio Advisory Committee unanimously agreed to add the Extended Motor Products Program (XMP) to the alliance’s portfolio. XMP will leverage NEEA’s previous investments in a distributor platform and its mid-stream relationships to increase the market adoption of energy-efficient industrial pumps. The program represents between 60-95 aMW of Total Regional Savings potential for the region. In March, NEEA published the findings of the second Residential Building Stock Assessment (RBSA II). Results will support utilities integrated resource plans and serve as the basis for many of the region’s energy calculation and modeling efforts. Finally, in late March NEEA staff finalized the 2017 energy savings estimate. I’m proud to report that the alliance met all of its annual energy savings targets.
