NORA stands for The National Oilheat Research Alliance, it was authorized by Congress in 2000 to provide funding that would allow the oilheating industry to provide more efficient and more reliable heat and hot water to the American Consumers. As a government sanctioned “check-off” program, $0.002 is collected at the wholesale level on every gallon of heating oil sold. While it is mandatory, the benefits greatly outweigh the minimal cost.

The four key arms of NORA are Consumer Education, Professional Education, improving energy efficiency and safety, and Research Consumer Education allows NORA to reach out to the consumer and show that oilheat is a clean, safe, efficient and modern form of heating.  This communication is essential to the industry’s survival.

Professional education, through the Technician Certification Program, provides continuing education, training and certification for oilheat service technicians. Lastly, NORA funding has helped a number of manufacturers to develop highly efficient heating equipment, such as condensing boilers and furnaces, variable speed furnaces, variable burners and number of other technologically advanced, highly efficient products.

Additionally, improving the basic fuel has been one of NORA’s highest priorities and has resulted in Bioheat® fuel…clean, environmentally friendly, American grown.

NORA also funds a number of projects at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Brookhaven National Laboratory researches new heating methods and fuels as well as addresses tank and storage issues, delivery and fuel quality.
