ABOUT WHPA 2018 - Present
The Western HVAC Performance Alliance Inc. (WHPA) is a California nonprofit public benefit corporation providing, conducting and promoting research and education focused on energy efficiency, environmental quality, and sustainability through the HVACR lens.
WHPA (as an unincorporated entity) was initially founded in 2009 in response to the portion of the California Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan (CEESP) that reads: "An HVAC Advisory Group should be chartered to involve high-level HVAC industry stakeholders—such as manufacturers, distributors, and contractors—to coordinate industry sponsorship of and participation in HVAC strategies. Membership should also include other key players, such as the CPUC, Energy Commission, utilities, building owners/managers, consumers, and the Federal government."
As a nonprofit public benefit corporation, WHPA continues to work as a guiding light for California stakeholders to educate and drive present and future HVACR energy efficiency initiatives and benefit consumers. This includes facilitated communication and action as a broad and diverse stakeholder advisory group whose collective expertise informs the development and implementation of efficiency strategy, policy and programs focused on topics such as HVAC Energy Efficiency and Demand Response, Emerging Technology, the HVACR Industry, HVACR Community Engagement, Consumer Outreach, Codes and Standards, Public Policy, and Workforce Education & Training.
WHPA's research library of past work products is representative of the immense institutional knowledge and influence the WHPA has to offer.
WHPA membership is available in the following primary voting categories: (1) Direct Supply Chain/Market Actor/End User, (2) Industry/Consumer Organizations, (3) Local/State/Federal Government Agencies, and (4) Energy Providers/Program Administrators, as well as a nonvoting Associate category.
