In cooperation with the United States Department of Energy, the AESP Institute is proud to launch an in-depth training program on DSM program impact evaluation. This course is ideal for new staff entering a research and evaluation function in DSM. Upon completion of all necessary coursework and meeting other requirements, participants will receive AESP’s “Certificate of Excellence – Foundations of Impact Evaluation.”


This course covers the basics of the energy industry and demand-side management industry, before diving into the principles of program impact evaluation. In this cohort-based program, participants enroll at the same time as their peers and experience the learning journey together (communicating via an online discussion board and eventually meeting in person), culminating in a final project which they complete as a team. 

Individually, participants will be required to complete two courses and a project.

Course 1 will be online and self-paced

Course 2 will be a two day in-person course ( LAPTOP is REQUIRED)

The Project will be introduced during the in-person course.


Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the demand side management industry, including its basic purpose, components, and function
  • Identify the purpose of evaluation, measurement and verification
  • Understand and apply foundational program impact evaluation knowledge that grounds and guides professional practice
  • Identify and define program impact evaluation methodology terms
  • Demonstrate the ability to frame impact evaluation questions
  • Determine appropriate impact evaluation methods, including quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods.


Target Audience

The program is designed with new evaluation staff in mind, those with less than 3 years’ experience in the energy industry. Ideal candidates for this program include new staff entering a research and evaluation function in DSM consultancies, consultancies that specialize in research and evaluation, government, state and regional energy organizations and large utilities with in-house evaluation needs (National Grid, etc.).
