This study will compare the effectiveness and cost of the new Delta Q test with the
standard duct pressurization test. The purpose of the subcommittee is to determine
whether any organization is interested in expanding the sample size or otherwise
investing in the study.
Develop specifications for ducts inside in new construction. Have specs to review by
Aug RTF meeting.

Determine whether marginal line losses (I2R) should be accounted for differently than
average line losses.

Review the calculator in detail; make recommendation to RTF whether calculator
should be allowed in lieu of M&V

1. Quality Assurance: Refine the sampling requirements for quality assurance. Is 10%
2. Review PTCS Ducts Inside Spec: get consensus w/ EStar NW Technical Review
3. Update PTCS Duct Specifications (a. turn into a spec document rather than a
training manual, and b. incorporate updates to the spec)
4. Review HSPF requirement for commissioning/controls only measures
Review and update agriculture irrigation hardware measure savings assumptions

How to quantify benefits of increased productivity from energy efficiency
measures (lighting in particular).
Deemed Calculation Methods
Kick off meeting end of May. Finished by December. Subcommittee to help
oversee the project??? (This project will be done by region, starting with PSE. It
was decided that there is not a lot of benefit to doing a larger regional study since
the contractors are regional and their pricing varies by region. The hope is for PSE
to lay the groundwork of study design, for others to follow.)

Subcommittee to help oversee the project???

RFP will be sent soon

Meeting postponed to October to wait for data

Sub-subcommittee met 9/12/08: doesn't look c/e, but looking at lighting
savings and costs, DCV may be good retrofit measure. Presented
Ice-makers completed. Refrigerators/freezers awaiting cost data.

Waiting for data.

Results in - presented at Sept 2008 RTF meeting, gaskets and autocloser
savings approved at Nov 2008 RTF meeting
