national action plan for energy efficiency
National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency
  • Released on July 31, 2006 at the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners meeting
  • Goal:To create a sustainable, aggressive national commitment to energy efficiency through gas and electric utilities, utility regulators, and partner organizations
  • Over 60 member public-private Leadership Group developed five recommendations and commits to take action
  • Additional commitments to energy efficiency – exceeds 120 organizations
  • Facilitated by US DOE and EPA
  • National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency
  • Recommendations
  • Recognize energy efficiency as a high-priority energy resource.
  • Make a strong, long-term commitment to implement cost-effective energy efficiency as a resource.
  • Broadly communicate the benefits of and opportunities for energy efficiency.
  • Provide sufficient, timely and stable program funding to deliver energy efficiency where cost-effective.
  • Modify policies to align utility incentives with the delivery of cost-effective energy efficiency and modify ratemaking practices to promote energy efficiency investments.
model energy efficiency program impact evaluation guide
Model Energy Efficiency Program Impact Evaluation Guide
  • Guide was developed because a need was identified for documents that foster best practices and promote consistent evaluations of programs
  • Provides a structure and several model approaches for:
    • Calculating energy and demand savings
    • Calculating avoided emissions
  • Published in November 2007 after a year long national committee process
  • To provide:
    • A model impact evaluation process that can be used by individual jurisdictions (states, utilities, etc.) with their own specific evaluation requirements
    • Basic descriptions and guidance, in a policy neutral manner, of evaluation options and issues
    • List of reference documents and resources
  • Readers should be able to:
    • Define the basic objectives, structure and evaluation approaches that will be used for their own program-specific, impact evaluation
    • Using the Guide and other documents referenced in Guide, prepare a complete program impact evaluation plan.

ca s approach to em v protocols
CA’s Approach to EM&V - Protocols
  • California’s Protocols establish a uniform approach for:
    • Conducting robust and cost-efficient energy efficiency evaluation studies;
    • Documenting ex-post evaluation-confirmed (i.e. realized) energy efficiency program and portfolio effects;
    • Supporting the performance bases for judging energy efficiency program and portfolio achievements;
    • Providing data to support energy efficiency program and portfolio cost-effectiveness assessments;
  • EM&V budgets about 8% of program costs; and,
  • EM&V overseen by CPUC, independent of IOUs.

What it takes ….. Integration, Innovation, Collaboration…

The “Next Generation” of California EE

  • Long-term (through 2020), statewide utility strategic plan
  • Integration across customer demand resources
  • Real time/interactive Energy Efficiency Web Portal
