Creating a “High Value” Trade Ally Network (white paper)

In the implementation of many types of energy efficiency (EE) programs, trade allies often play an important delivery role in each of the major market segments –residential, commercial and industrial. In fact, a substantial portion of non-retail (mid-stream/upstream) program activity is enabled, developed, sold and quantified for EE cost and savings purposes by networks of trade allies. Unfortunately, all too often, we see utilities failing to extract the full potential value from their trade allies. The good news is that a properly developed, trained and managed trade ally network can create significant value for a utility by decreasing administrative costs; reducing evaluation, measurement and verification (EM&V) risk; and increasing overall customer satisfaction.
