Definition Sheet


Due to the constant rise in energy prices, combined with regulatory changes and environmental issues, both electric and gas utilities must work to ensure that energy is consumed in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner as possible. Consumer pressure for energy cost reductions, together with energy availability and reliability issues are challenging the energy industry.

The main objective of the Customer Energy Solutions Interest Group (CESIG) is to assist energy providers, the related energy services industry, equipment manufacturers, and governments in helping consumers achieve energy and demand reduction through the development, demonstration and commercialization of customer energy solutions. Through the Interest Group, participants are able to create new products and energy streams, to develop new regulations, standards and guidelines for energy efficiency and DSM applications, as well as provide new technology solutions for customer problems.
