Appliance Standards Awareness Project
The Appliance Standards Awareness Project (ASAP) is dedicated to increasing awareness of, and support for, appliance and equipment efficiency standards at the federal and state levels.
ASAP is a collaborative program between the Alliance, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy and the Natural Resources Defense Council. ASAP is dedicated to increasing awareness of, and support for, appliance and equipment efficiency standards at the federal and state levels.
ASAP leads a coalition of energy efficiency advocates that participate in Department of Energy rulemakings on appliance efficiency standards and test methods and negotiate consensus standards with manufacturer organizations. It is led by a steering committee that includes representatives from consumer groups, the environmental community, utilities and state government.
States pioneered the first energy-efficiency standards and are once again looking to efficiency standards as a key policy for saving energy. ASAP provides advice and technical support to states interested in advancing their standards.
