Database of State Efficiency Screening Practices (DSESP)

A Resource of the NESP

Introduction

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.

September 2019:  The complete DSESP now contains information for 52 states and jurisdictions. As NESP receives feedback and continues research, information on state practices and guidance documents will be updated, alongside additions including underlying studies and methodologies used to estimate a range of utility and non-utility system impacts.
