    CLASP Regional Collaboration Case Study

    The Collaborative Labeling and Appliance Standards Program (CLASP) has contributed to several regional collaborations directed at aligning or harmonizing energy efficiency standards and labels (S&L) as well as the test procedures that underlie these measures. The goal of these regional collaborations is to advance the quantity and quality of S&L practice to a new plateau, and, by doing so, dramatically transform markets, improve economic efficiency, and accelerate the pace of GHG mitigation.
