Should weatherization programs consider non-energy benefits in the cost-effectiveness test?

Weatherization provides more benefits to residents outside of saving energy. However, the Department of Energy (DOE) guidelines don’t allow programs to count improvements that don’t tie directly to energy cost savings. We aim to change that. The results of this literature review could influence the DOE’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) to include non-energy impacts (NOIs), like health in the cost-effectiveness analysis for weatherization measures. This will lead to more weatherization projects. More
