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.


4 0 standard protocol2

4.0 Standard Protocol

  • 4.1.2. Transparent and Accessible Savings Calculator

  • 4.2.1. Definition of Best Practice ReliablityStandard

  • 4.2.2. Definition of Simplest Reliable Savings Estimation Method

  • 4.2.3. Provisional Status and Data Requirements

  • 4.2.4. Under Review Status

  • 4.3. Documentation Standard

  • 4.4. Sampling Application of Standard Protocols
