Did you know that utilities across the United States invested $7.7 billion in energy efficiency in 2016? Incredible. This spending has translated to ongoing efficiency savings in commercial buildings through utility demand side management incentive and rebate programs. Waypoint collaborates with regional energy efficiency organizations (REEOs) to maximize the impact of utility efficiency spending and transform commercial markets across state lines and among utility territories.

REEOs build partnerships with utilities, governments, and industry groups to scale development and adoption of efficiency policies and technologies across states and municipalities. The six REEOs nationwide are non-profits that provide a mix of policy and program tools to help advance energy efficiency:
- - Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA)
- - Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP)
- - Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA)
- - Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance (SEEA)
- - Southwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (SWEEP)
- - South-Central Partnership for Energy Efficiency as a Resource (SPEER)
Waypoint is leading the way by working with REEOs to identify and engage key stakeholders in commercial building markets to drive uptake of efficiency best practices and realize deep energy savings. For example, Waypoint partners with NEEA to design and deploy market transformation strategies to accelerate commercial building efficiency adoption. Waypoint leads NEEA’s commercial real estate program to drive efficiency in the market by designing tailored market engagement strategies and initiatives, developing stakeholder-specific resources and trainings, and deploying innovative programs with measurable successes.
