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.

June 2019:  The DSESP now contains information for 38 states and jurisdictions, and will be further expanded this year to include practices in the balance of states. Information on underlying studies and the methodologies used to estimate a range of utility and non-utility system impacts will be added, including new research and guidance documents.
