agenda 12 december 11
Agenda 12 December 11
  • Subcommittee introductions and experience with CVR
  • Subcommittee purpose, (e.g. custom protocol for Automated CVR)
  • Summary of the RTF Guidelines for Custom Protocols
  • Some background on the RTF\'s related Protocols
    • Automated CVR Protocol #1,
    • Voltage Optimization Protocol
  • PCS UtiliData\'s proposed update to CVR #1
  • Define data and protocol descriptions we need to complete a custom protocol
  • Next steps, homework, schedule next meeting.
four methods of energy savings estimation
Four Methods of Energy Savings Estimation
  • Unit Energy Savings
    • Measurements of typical baseline and efficient case characteristics and energy use support estimates of average savings
    • Identifiers, e.g., climate zone, group applications to reduce savings variance among applications
  • Standard Protocol
    • Entirely prescriptive data collection and analysis procedure that will work for all eligible measures
    • Transparent and accessible savings calculator
four methods of energy savings estimation1
Four Methods of Energy Savings Estimation
  • Custom Protocol
    • For measures that require site-specific data collection and analysis to develop reliable estimates
    • Minimum documentation requirements include data collection and analysis procedures and characteristics of the commissioned measure
  • Program Impact Evaluation
    • RTF sponsored peer review for research designs
    • Regional collaboration on research designs
    • Future version of Guidelines to provide more guidance on research protocols
4 0 standard protocol
4.0 Standard Protocol

4.1.1. Minimum Requirements

  • Precise specification of the measure including eligibility rules.
  • Simplest reliable savings estimation procedure.
  • Entirely prescriptive data collection and analysis procedure that will work for all eligible measures.
  • Independent of program design and delivery method.
  • Skills required are common among the region’s program implementation workforce.
4 0 standard protocol1
4.0 Standard Protocol

4.1.1. Minimum Requirements (Continued)

  • Protocol is cost-effective across a range of measure savings.
  • Yield savings estimates that are additive, i.e., independent of the savings from other measures implemented at the same site.
  • Protocol documentation that complies with section 4.3.
