Q2 2024 Market Research and Evaluation Newsletter

The slightly slower pace and sunny days of summer are almost here. While NEEA's Market Research and Evaluation (MRE) team has a lot of work to carry out through the warm months, things are slowing just a bit. This is evidenced by the slightly shorter than typical list of projects highlighted in this quarter’s newsletter. The team has several ongoing evaluations in the field, including three market progress evaluations (for High-Performance HVAC, Efficient Rooftop Units and Extended Motor Products programs) as well as four state energy code compliance evaluations that are designed to estimate the rate of compliance with updated state building codes.

It is also worth mentioning several interesting market research efforts that are underway. Two studies have just launched to support gas water heating program opportunities. Another study will explore consumers’ use and attitudes associated with connected consumer products. Additionally, there will be a slight change to the way that Market Progress Evaluation Reports are numbered for NEEA's Codes program, see page 11 for more details.

Lots on the horizon. Enjoy this newsletter and please reach out with any questions or suggestions.
