Recently, energy efficiency program administrators have provided incentives up the supply channel to a “midstream” market actor – the wholesale distributor – resulting in sales doubling, and in some cases, increasing ten-fold for ENERGY STAR certified water heaters and HVAC. Click on "How It Works" below to be introduced to the basic concepts behind distributor-focused midstream programs. The following pages will give insight to the remarkable increases in program participation, and a helpful understanding of why the programs are so successful. You'll also be able to review best practices and key resources gathered from program implementers.
