IEEE P1595

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.

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 Standard document.

Note that the P1595 Preliminary Standard Document is Available to CCWG members.
