Sponsors shall report to DOE no later than first quarter of each calendar year, or as requested by their Account Manager, whichever is earlier. An Annual Report Template will be provided to all Sponsors at the beginning of each calendar year. Annual data is based on the calendar year and includes all of the following:
- Verified and updated contact information
- Verified and updated program URL and description for HPwES website
- Updated program implementation plan elements
- Summary results of preceding program year
- Summary goals for upcoming program year.
Note: A reminder for quarterly reports will be issued one month after the close of a quarter. Sponsors should provide their quarterly reports following this schedule:
Q1 Jan.-March | April 30th
Q2 April-June | July 30th
Q3 July-Sept. | October 30th
Q4 Oct.-Dec. | January 30th
DOE is interested in gathering information on the previous year’s results, as well as plans for the upcoming year. The Annual Report questions are designed to coincide as much as possible with the data Sponsors normally collect and information that is readily accessible to the Sponsor’s implementation team. As detailed in Section 2, submittal of Annual Reports will meet requirements for annual updates to a Sponsor’s Implementation Plan. As Sponsors and their implementation team complete the Annual Report, any questions can be directed to their Account Manager.
