NSPM Use and References
To track interest, understanding and use of the National Standard Practice ManualTM, the map below shows references made in jurisdictions, including those made in regulatory dockets, federal/US DOE inquiries, legislative bills, reports and studies, etc. We show where the NSPM is recommended or used as a BCA framework for improving cost-effectiveness practices for a single DER or multiple DERs, and in various regulatory contexts. In addition to U.S. jurisdictions, the NSPM has been referenced in the Canadian provinces Ontario, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and British Columbia.
State Use of NSPM
More than a dozen jurisdictions have applied the NSPM BCA framework to develop or modify an existing benefit-cost analysis (BCA) test for a single DER or multiple DERs, and across different regulatory contexts. See map below and more details at State Use of NSPM.
The map also shows where the NSPM has been recommended or referenced by stakeholders across the U.S. and in Canada, with details provided in this Summary of NSPM References.
NESP will provide updates as they evolve. If you are aware of references to the NSPM that are not listed in the downloadable file, please contact NSPM@nationalenergyscreeningproject.org.
From 2017 to summer 2020, references were primarily to the NSPM for EE. References thereafter also reflect the NSPM for DERs.
