Performance Excellence in Electricity Renewal (PEER) is the nation’s first comprehensive, consumer-centric, data-driven system for evaluating power system performance. It is designed to transform the power industry into a more sustainable one by providing operators with a framework for continuous improvement and performance assessment through PEER certification. It is modeled after LEED, the successful green building rating system Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
PEER provides a complete picture of the efficiency, quality, safety, resilience and reliability of energy generation, transmission and distribution systems. It provides actionable information that empowers building owners and power providers to configure and operate their systems to maximum effectiveness across key metrics. Launched in 2015, cities and campuses are identifying different ways to utilize PEER to improve their city’s electrical sustainability and reliability.
