Commercial Quality Installation Committee (CQI): Develops a roadmap on how CQI can help meet California's energy savings goals with particular focus on specifying quality standards and protocols.
Commercial Quality Maintenance Committee (CQM): Makes recommendations to operationalize Standard 180 (which is synonymous with and defines “CQM”) including researching and developing an effective value proposition.
Compliance Committee: Provides recommendations to support compliance, enforcement, and verification of applicable building and appliance standards.
Council of Advisors (COA): The following types of organizations are eligible for membership in the COA:
  • Organizations with members such as associations, societies, labor unions, and similar

The mission of the COA is to own, evolve, update, and help implement the California Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan (CEESP) and the HVAC Action Plan. This responsibility includes assessing progress of these two plans in the market, IOU programs, and regulatory policy.
Existing Buildings Energy Efficiency Action Plan Committee: Acts as a resource for the California Energy Commission as it continues to develop a comprehensive strategy for greater energy efficiency in existing buildings in California.
Fault, Detection, and Diagnostics Committee (FDD): Explores, defines, and promotes useful research into both imbedded and in-field portable fault detection and diagnostics.
HVAC Energy Savings and DEER Committee: Provides input to the DEER (Database for Energy Efficiency Resources) and utility workpapers, gathers published papers about energy savings in HVAC, and recommends research needs.
Residential Quality Installation Committee (RQI): Makes recommendations to operationalize ACCA Standard 5 (which is synonymous with and defines “RQI”) and ACCA Standard 9 (the ANSI accredited RQI verification protocol), including identifying research needs.
Workforce Education and Training Committee: Provides guidance, information, and subject matter expertise to the statewide investor-owned utility team responsible for implementation of the workforce education and training pilot program.
Other: I am not interested in any of the above Committees or Working Groups, but I am interested in the following HVAC-related efficiency subjects (please list in your own words your own interests: e.g.; Market Transformation, Emerging Technologies, HVAC Standards, Energy Engineering, HVAC in Whole Building Performance, etc.):
