This Energy Efficiency Reference (EERef) is provided as a service of the Oregon State University Energy Efficiency Center. It is intended to help users identify and quantify opportunities to improve efficiency in the Industrial, Agricultural, Commercial, Institutional and Residential sectors. 

The OSU EEC houses the OSU Industrial Assessment Center, offers Rural Energy Audits, OSU facility assessments, and other customized assessments. The center focuses on mentored energy efficiency training, performs related research, data accumulation and analysis and offers other related services. Meet our staff here!

This reference grew out of a desire to develop a resource that will be useful internally for use by the OSU EEC and externally by the general energy efficiency community. While a background project for several years, in January 2010 the OSU EEC adopted a formal process of converting recommendations developed specifically in the course of performing regional assessments to general templates for future use within and outside of the center.

This reference is being developed as part of numerous other projects funded through multiple sources including:
