This paper notes that the advances in technology, the increase and changing needs for standby generation, and environmental concerns suggests a new look at standby generation codes and standards. It also suggests that policy makers should consider replacing existing standby generation policies with performance standards that would better suit the needs for standby generation, and potentially, encourage new, more energy efficiency, and environmentally friendlier technologies.
