The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) and the IEEE Power
Engineering Society’s (IEEE-PES) Working Group for
Implementing Technology to Limit Climate Change (CCWG) have
initiated this industry-wide, cooperatively funded program.
The program goal is to develop a set of international
standards for the quantification (measurement, verification
and certification) of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission credits
from certifiable projects in the electricity sector (IEEE-SA
Project P1595). These standards will be globally applicable,
will simplify and permit cost effective evaluation of project
GHG credits, thus facilitating the development of projects
that generate such credits and support the trading and
retirement of such credits in national and international
markets.Note that the P1595 Preliminary Standard
Document is Available to CCWG members.
The development work for the P1595 set of
standards is a multi-part, multi-year project with first
priority given to develop standards for quantifying the GHG
credits attributable to Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
projects. With IRS 501 (c) status, financial support through
charitable donations is being sought to engage technical
expertise and resources in the development of the Standard.
This work includes developing the rules, methodology,
templates, case studies and web tools which are to be shared
with all contributing parties.
GHG reduction projects
are also being sought that can be used as Case Studies to
illustrate the application of the Standard. If your project is
selected as a Case Study, then it will be recognized in the
