Abstract The focus of this inventory, some of which has been placed into a searchable spreadsheet, is to support the National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) and to research cost information in state-mandated energy efficiency program evaluations e.g., for use in updating analytic and modeling assumptions used by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). At EIA, NEMS is used in developing the Annual Energy Outlook (AEO) projections. NEMS is also used to prepare analytical studies for the U.S. Congress, the Executive Office of the President, other offices within the U.S. Department of Energy, and other Federal agencies. Outside EIA, NEMS is used by other nongovernment groups, such as the Electric Power Research Institute, Duke University, and Georgia Institute of Technology. In addition, the AEO projections are used by analysts and planners in other government agencies and nongovernment organizations. These data, which have been used as a sampling source for EIA's purposes, support the EIA goal of quality improvement to maintain relevancy and consistency with changing energy markets and represent a limited sample of recent utility energy efficiency program evaluation, measurement and verification (EM&V) reports pertaining to residential, commercial, and industrial energy efficiency programs and measures. The intent of making this information available is to facilitate further research by enabling the rapid location and comparison of EM&V reports in terms of geography, scope, and other relevant characteristics. This inventory is national in scope with the exception of California, for which the CALMAC system provides a ready source for EM&V information. EIA does not plan to maintain this spreadsheet over time, so interested parties will need to verify any changes to EM&V documents or records status made after the spring of 2013.
