Mission and Structure

The mission of this committee is to provide input into the California Energy Commission (CEC) Existing Buildings Energy Efficiency Action Plan as desired and necessary. WHPA members and industry will work collaboratively with the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) and Investor Owned Utilities (IOUs) to help reach consensus on the energy savings aspects of HVAC installation and maintenance.

This Committee is aligned with all of the Goals in the California Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan (CEESP), which is termed Cross-Cutting HVAC Goals 1-4. Click here for more information on the Cross-Cutting Goals of the Strategic Plan.
