Public Power's Demand-side Management (DSM) Benchmarker will help in DSM program evaluation by enabling comparison of an individual utility’s energy efficiency program performance to its peers and generating benchmark comparisons. The DSM Benchmarker tool generates customizable peer comparison charts for a range of energy efficiency indicators such as energy savings, potential demand reduction, and spending relative to utility size.
The DSM Benchmarker utilizes data collected and vetted by the Department of Energy on EIA form 861-Schedule 6, the mandatory annual reporting to capture, nation-wide, all utility energy efficiency. The tool is designed to provide you with the opportunity to access reliable data and make apples-to-apples comparisons. Other competing DSM tools are based on voluntary un-audited state reporting.
