In the US, the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) works behind the scenes with regulatory agencies to provide technical advice and training with an eye toward the ultimate goal of de-carbonizing the US electricity sector. This grant would allow them to build tools and provide training for regulators in target states to ensure that energy efficiency programs are tracked in ways that allow accurate accounting of their associated global warming emission reductions. RAP will work with these states and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure that best practices are used to incorporate energy efficiency measures into the set of flexible policies that "count" toward meeting the new EPA carbon standard for existing power plants. A draft standard is expected to be released in June, 2014.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
The Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) focuses on key policy areas to drive a more efficient and equitable decarbonized energy future and to ensure a sustainable and just transition. RAP develops solutions to the questions that regulators and other public, private, and non-government organization decision makers are asking (or should be asking), working to change the narrative and leverage partnerships to accelerate change. RAP’s four policy areas are (a) faster electrification of buildings and transportation, (b) faster phaseouts of gas infrastructure, (c) removing barriers to distributed energy, and (d) decarbonizing the electric grid. Across these four areas, RAP provides decision makers in the power sector with global best practices — and the expertise to implement them. (Substrategy: Electrification)
for general operating support  
This one-time grant is to support collaborative work underway by the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) between the United State's Federal Regulatory Commission (FERC) and China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) on issues related to integrating renewable energy resources into the electric power grid, environmental and economic dispatch of electric generation and energy price setting, energy markets and reliability matters.
