Why PEER

Build a modern electric grid with PEER

Drive market transformation through PEER

Utilizing PEER allows local and regional governments, utilities, large energy consumers, and developers to take control of their energy future. It allows for the lofty goals of addressing and adapting to climate change in the energy sector to be translated into action via real, on-the-ground projects.


Connect governments, utilities and consumers around shared clean energy and resiliency goals

PEER allows for local, regional, and national government entities, consumers, and energy providers to work from a shared playbook in order to facilitate the construction of modern, 21st century electricity infrastructure.


Reduce capital waste, lower emissions and improve efficiency

Utilize PEER to measure and improve power system performance with a set of common metrics and verifiable outcomes.

PEER certification

Demonstrate your project's value with PEER

PEER is a rating system that evaluates a power system’s performance based on four categories:

Reliability and resilience
Reliability and resilience
Operations, safety and maintenance
Operations, safety and maintenance
Energy efficiency and environment
Energy efficiency and environment
Grid services
Grid services

Eligibility

PEER can be utilized for a variety of power systems, including: campuses, microgrids, critical infrastructure, an entire city's grid and a utility territory.


How PEER works

Projects can become certified by achieving a minimum set of requirements and score under the PEER rating system. There are four levels of certification, designating how well a project is performing. PEER certification can become a tool with which to demonstrate value to investors, identify opportunities for improvement and implement those (including through clean energy procurement), and drive larger market change.
