PEER is the first ever rating system that drives market transformation in the power and energy sectors. Through certification, PEER recognizes industry leaders for improving efficiency, day-to-day reliability and overall resiliency when it comes to severe events, such as flooding and hurricanes. PEER is for all power systems and includes guidance for cities, utilities, campuses and transit.
How PEER works
Projects can become certified by achieving a minimum set of requirements and score under the PEER rating system. There are four levels of certification, designating how well a project is performing. PEER certification can become a tool with which to demonstrate value to investors, identify opportunities for improvement and implement those (including through clean energy procurement), and drive larger market change. Precertification is also available as an optional step in the process.
Registration for all project types: $1,200

While all PEER-certified projects are a cut above the rest, each is assigned one of four levels of certification to acknowledge the degree of achievement. The number of points that your project earns determines the level of PEER certification that you will receive.
- PEER Certified™: 40-49 points earned
- PEER Silver®: 50-59 points earned
- PEER Gold®: 60-79 points earned
- PEER Platinum®: 80+ points earned
