Western HVAC Performance Alliance

The Western HVAC Performance Alliance (WHPA) is a fusion of HVAC, energy efficiency, facility, and property management organizations, researchers, educators, utilities, and regulatory agencies whose decision-maker-level appointees work with one another to curb energy waste. WHPA member organizations employ well over a million professionals.

WHPA members participate in committees and working groups, using their collective expertise to inform the development and implementation of efficiency policy and programs focused on topics such as HVAC workforce education and training, HVAC system specifications, code compliance, proper installation, system commissioning, operation, service, and maintenance, and emerging HVAC technologies.

WHPA Committees and Working Groups are listed to the left. If your organization would like to participate in any of these groups, please register to join.

WHPA Committee Responds to CEC Request for Input

Existing Buildings Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EBEE) Committee sent its first Work Product to the California Energy Commission (CEC), after adoption by the WHPA Executive Committee at its July 8 meeting.

The CEC asked the WHPA to provide input on the CEC’s draft of “Gap Analysis and Barriers to the Market”, which is a part of the Action Plan.

This proactive reaching out by the CEC to the WHPA for industry input on a significant public policy document was commended by the Executive Committee. Future input will be provided by EBEE to the CEC during continued work on the Action Plan.
