Database of State Efficiency Screening Practices (DSESP)

A Resource of the NESP


The purpose of the DSESP is to provide information regarding state cost-effectiveness screening practices for ratepayer funded electric efficiency programs. States can use the DSESP to learn about other states’ practices, and readily access and better understand policies, processes, and studies that support assumptions used by states in their benefit-cost analyses.

The DSESP contains information for 20 states, and will be expanded in 2019 to include practices in other states. Research is underway to identify underlying studies and the methodologies used to estimate a range of utility and non-utility system impacts, the findings of which will be incorporated into the DSESP in Q1-Q2 of 2019.
