WHPA Research Library:
A Collection of WHPA Generated Work Products,
Educational Webinars and Special Projects


WHPA’s Research Library serves as a comprehensive tool for regulators, utilities, the HVACR industry at large and consumers to gain education and information related to energy efficiency, environmental quality, and the sustainability goals of California through a wide variety of topical areas including commercial HVACR, residential HVACR, installation, maintenance, education and training, compliance and codes, policy, measurement and valuation (M&V) and sales.

To help WHPA better gage the audiences using the listed reports and the nature of those uses, thus ensuring continued public benefit in the development of future research and educational work products, library contents are available for complimentary email distribution upon request to reports@whpa-inc.org with reference to the specific library document(s) desired, a brief idea of planned uses for the requested document(s) and a brief description of your connection to the HVACR industry (such as your stakeholder perspective, organization, role or project, etcetera).
