About Us

The world of building energy efficiency is complex and ever changing with new technologies, programs and market transformation activities happening at increasing speeds. As such, utilities and efficiency organizations are actively working across the country to analyze new technologies and assess new program concepts. The goal of Efficiency Forward is to promote collaboration and transparency by serving as a resource that provides access to information on energy efficiency activities across utilities and efficiency organizations. In doing so, we hope to provide better and faster access to information and enable collaboration and the leveraging of existing information and activities wherever possible. By increasing the availability and use of this information, we hope to enable utilities and efficiency organizations to continue advancing market transformation with new and unique initiatives.

Background
