Energy Efficiency Resources
The Database for Energy Efficient Resources (DEER) contains information on selected energy-efficient technologies and measures. The DEER provides estimates of the energy-savings potential for these technologies in residential and nonresidential applications. The database contains information on typical measures -- those commonly installed in the marketplace -- and data on the costs and benefits of more energy-efficient measures. Energy-efficient measures provide the same energy services using less energy, but they usually cost slightly more.
Updates to the Database for Energy Efficiency Resources (DEER) have been developed by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) with funding provided by California ratepayers.
The DEER update, previously referred to as "DEER2013" will be referenced as "DEER2014" moving forward. The naming convention refers to the year when the updated values become applicable. DEER2014 has been released and the draft DEER2014 Alternate (code update without weather file update) is no longer available.
See READI "About" for more information on recent updates.
Draft of DEER 2014 Code Update was made available for review and comment.
The comment period for the draft update has ended.

To All Parties in R.09-11-014 and A.12-07-001 et al:
On July 17, 2013, the CPUC will hold a workshop to present the DEER 2013 and DEER 2014 update process and present proposed methodologies and values for the DEER 2013 update. This first workshop will focus on:
- DEER2013 mid-cycle updates will incorporate the codes and standards, including the California Title 20 Appliance Efficiency Regulations, the California Title 24 Building Efficiency Standards, and the United States Code of Federal Regulations, that become effective in January 2014 and will be applied to the 2013-14 portfolio cycle. Changes to weather input assumptions for the simulation models will also be included in the mid-cycle updates.
- DEER2014 updates will be apply to the post-2014 portfolio, beginning in 2015, and will tentatively include measure cost updates, saturation and baseline studies, measure use profile updates, and any Evaluation, Measurement, & Verification study results available within the schedule.
Wednesday, July 17th from 9:30 am - 5 pm
Auditorium at 505 Van Ness Ave, SF
