Abstract

Under the sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), staff at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a set of Enumeration Indicators to quantify key accomplishments of the State Energy Program (SEP), which sponsors a wide variety of state-operated energy conservation and renewable energy activities throughout the country. The broad range of SEP activities was divided into 21 key "program areas," each of which describes a related set of energy-conserving efforts. A number of Indicators were identified for each program area to provide a clear description of SEP accomplishments for that topic. Together, the full set of Enumeration Indicators allows the major outputs of the State Energy Program to be quantified in a way that is consistent over time and across state boundaries.
