Energy Efficiency Program Design and Implementation

AEA has performed program design, management and implementation for a variety of government and utility energy efficiency programs.

In New York, AEA has been a lead implementor or key actor in

  • The Utility Low Income Energy Efficiency Program (ULIEEP),
  • NYSERDA’s Direct Install, Electric Load Reduction, and Assisted Multifamily Program (precursor to the present Multifamily Performance Program),
  • Keyspan/National Grid’s Low Income Gas Efficiency Program, and
  • Con Edison’s Multifamily Energy Efficiency Program, for which AEA has been the Implementation Contractor since the program began in 2009.
  • AEA also participates in NYSERDA programs for multifamily and residential properties, such as the Multifamily Performance Program, EmPower, and the Home Performance with Energy Star program, as well as the Department of Energy’s Weatherization Assistance Program. Follow the links from our main Energy Services page for more information about these programs.

In California, AEA plays key roles in the implementation of technical services for

  • The Marin Energy Authority’s Multifamily Energy Efficiency Program
  • The Bay Area Multifamily Building Enhancements Program (Energy Upgrade California – Multifamily)
  • The California Housing Partnership Corporation (CHPC) and Stewards for Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF) Rate Payer Integrated On-Bill Payment Pilot Program

For all of these programs AEA provides technical services in the form of site assessments to identify energy and cost saving opportunities, diagnostic testing, energy modeling and engineering calculations, portfolio benchmarking, development of specifications, construction oversight and verification, health and safety inspections, regulatory compliance, customer recruitment, and project tracking.

In Illinois, AEA is part of the Franklin Energy Services team working to deliver multifamily energy efficiency upgrades to customers of Commonwealth Edison, Nicor Gas, North Shore Gas, and Peoples Gas utilities through their energy efficiency incentive programs.

AEA’s roles in government and utility energy efficiency are growing from New York to California to Illinois. Check this page for further developments.
