  1. RTF March 2, 2010 RTUG Project Management Contract Expansion And RTF 2010 Work Plan Budget Adjustments

  2. Goal Today • Direction on Scope of Work & Deliverables • Decision on funding additional project management & research (Phase 4)

  3. Refresher: Phase 3 • Monitored data on 174 units in 2009 • Promising results & savings methodology • Presented November 2009 • Further analysis & development needed for Savings Methodology, calculator or deemed savings: • Annual metering results • Specifications & protocol • Half dozen other issues to resolve with additional research • Out of funding for RTUG project management

  4. January 2010 • RTUG endorsed continuation of the project management by New Buildings Institute (NBI) • Valuable regional cooperative effort • Sole source basis subject to review of scope • Last RTF Meeting • Preliminary cost estimate Phase 4 • >$80K for project & technical management • Raised issue of how to determine going forward • Will it fit in budget? • What other projects might come before RTF? • How to decide in uncertain future?

  5. Since Last RTF Meeting • NBI solicited & assembled next-step research • Polled key RTUG participants for ideas • Developed research & analytical path • Draft scope for Phase 4 circulated to the RTUG for comment • Project management & coordination • Research & analytical scope based on comments • BPA questioning cost-effectiveness • Costs high, unknown persistence

  6. Where to from here?

  7. Next Steps to Get to Savings Methodology • Complete collecting & storing the 12-month data • Determine confidence in annual savings methodology • Further assessment of data: Baseline & treatment conditions, persistence of fan schedules, annual fan power & duty cycle, negative savings, isolate refrig & air flow conditions, TMY vs site temps, service tech interviews • Develop scope & budget for extending to 36-month monitor • Establish functioning data repository with open access Direct Research Funded by BPA via Cadmus. Needs RTUG review & technical guidance. Unfunded Project Management.

  8. Revised Scope of Work Phase 4Management ($27K) • Management, Communications & Reporting • 3 RTUG & 3 RTF meetings over 9 months • 75 hours • Facilitate regional service & field measurement protocols, encourage added M&V & sampling • 75 hours • Communicate & collaborate with other regions • 30 hours • Meeting minutes, reports, presentations, final report

  9. Revised Scope of Work Phase 4Technical ($21K) • Review results of analysis by BPA/Cadmus, synthesize for discussion at RTUG & presentation to RTF • Develop the complete savings methodology for proposal to the RTF • 70 hours • Phase 1 database development assistance • 10 hours • Develop elements of strategic plan for RTU next steps • Service vs early replacement, incorporate DCV/Premium Ventilation, VSD/ECM motors, fan upgrade, FDD, Evap Hybrid RTU, Advanced RTU, digital economizer control, other Emerging Tech • Internet-enabled T-Stats, lower-cost monitoring, whole-building approach to monitoring, • 75 hours

  10. Summary of Critical Path Costs

  11. Summary of Potential Additional RTU Research Costs

  12. So Where’s the Money?

  13. Budget Snap Shot – March 2010

  14. Issues • About $175K budget for “unidentified incoming” for the remainder 2010 • How much of that for RTUG Phase 4? • What other unidentified incoming will show up? • Where to get any remainder for RTUG? • Solicit direct contributions • Find a sugar daddy • Cut the RTUG phase 4 scope & budget

  15. Proposal • Allocate $52K of “Available” to RTUG Phase 4 Scope • Sole source to NBI • Final scope to RTF staff working with RTUG • Decide later on RTF support for further RTUG work (2011) or find other funders • Leaves $120K for remainder of 2010 for other incoming projects
