"Planning and Allocation of Work Ppt Presentation"
MINUTES California Measurement Advisory Council (CALMAC) Wednesday, October 27, 2004 10:00 AM – 2:30 PM Pacific Energy Center, San Francisco, CA Attendees: PG&E: Valerie Richardson (Chair), Rafael Friedmann, Mary Kay Gobris, Jennifer Barnes; Ingrid Bran, Jay Luo, Beatrice Mayo; SCE: Marian Brown, Pierre Landry; Carol Yin (via phone); Sempra: Rob Rubin; CEC: Mike Messenger; CPUC: Tim Drew, Peter Lai (via phone), Zenaida Conway (via phone); Equipoise Consulting: Tim Caulfield; Mary Sutter, EVO/IPMVP: Steve Kromer; FSC: Chris Ann Dickerson; LBNL: Ed Vine (via phone); AEC: Pete Jacobs; NRDC: Devra Bachrach; Quantec: Hossein Haeri; ORA: Christine Tam; Ridge & Associates: Rick Ridge; Itron: Keith Fuller; WEM: Barbara George; Kema-Xenergy: Fred Coito; GeoPraxis: Tom Conlon; CEE: Monica Nevius; PA Consulting: Jeff Erickson (via phone) Comparison of 1994-1997 CA Evaluation Protocols, CA Framework, IPMVP and CPUC Policy Manual in terms of how they define program gross energy and demand EM&V requirements – A preface to group discussion – Mary Sutter (Equipoise Consulting) Highlights from the presentation: 1. The presentation reviewed and compared documents used for evaluation in California. a. CPUC’s Energy Efficiency Policy Manual, version 2. b. The California Evaluation Framework. c. Protocols and Procedures for the Verification of Costs, Benefits, and Shareholder Earnings from DSM Programs (The “Protocols”). d. International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP). 2. None of these documents discuss demand impacts. 3. Measurement of demand impact would be much more expensive than converting GWh to MW. Mary’s PowerPoint presentation is located on the CALMAC website http://www.calmac.org/events/CALMAC_Presentation_102704_V1.ppt Questions raised at the end of the presentation stimulated a lively discussion on various issues that may/should be included within the scope of the protocols. The discussion included the following: The desire by the CEC to have standard conversion factors for environmental impact. The apparent overlap of the Protocol Manual and the Policy Manual. The allocation of funds for EM&V aimed at reducing risk. The issue of resource adequacy. The measurement of third-party programs. The need for “8760” data by system planners. The need for rigorous deemed savings estimates for planning purposes. The question of whether there will be a protocol for determining how to evaluate smaller programs with measures that are not part of deemed savings. Resolution and next steps was for questions that were presented and discussed to carry over to the November 10, 2004, EM&V Protocols Workshop. Potential outcomes from the workshop include 1) determination of the scope of the Protocol Manual vs. Policy Manual, and 2) determination of the process for developing protocols. CALMAC Website Project Number System Update - Tim Caulfield (Equipoise Consulting) Highlights from the presentation: 1. Third-party reports have begun to be posted on the CALMAC Searchable Database. 2. The CALMAC.org numbering system is in operation. 3. New capability to post nontechnical summaries. 4. Added features include an introduction-to-site in the home page, hotlink to the rolling event banner, posting of report submission guidelines, text on where to submit progress reports for CALMAC meetings. Tim’s presentation is located on the CALMAC website http://www.calmac.org/events/CALMAC_Website_Committee_Status_Report_10-27- 04_V1.doc MAESTRO: Overarching Study and Measurement Impact Study Schedule for 2006-08 - Ingrid Bran, (PG&E), Pierre Landry (SCE), Rob Rubin (Sempra) Highlights from the presentation: 1. Review of the categories of overarching studies a. Savings Potential b. Savings Costs c. Market Analyses d. Program Methods e. Evaluation Methods 2. The need for establishing a schedule in order to ensure timeliness, establish funding needs, and coordinate with other constraints such as DEER updates and RASS and Potential Studies schedules. 3. Presentation of schedule timeline as a function of program planning. This presentation is located on the CALMAC website: http://www.calmac.org/events/Overarching_Study_Schedule_102604.ppt The presentation included establishing an overarching framework where the primary studies that provide major input to market potential are placed in a category and timeline with the goal of producing updated potential data at the beginning of each program planning cycle. The discussion included the following: Incorporating the schedule into Chapter 5 (Umbrella Framework for Evaluation Planning, Funding, and Research Prioritization Decisions) or Chapter 15 (Overarching Evaluation Studies) of The California Evaluation Framework. Incorporating into the Protocols. Formation of a MAESTRO task group. Assessment of who needs the studies’ results and when. Allocation of funds for best practices work. A suggestion by Mike Messenger to bring a proposal to make Overarching Studies part of the Protocols to the CPUC Energy Division Workshop on Protocols, scheduled for November 10, 2004. Update: Potential Studies – Rafael Friedmann (PG&E), Keith Fuller (Itron), Fred Coito (Kema-Xenergy) Highlights from the presentations: 1. Energy Efficiency Potential Summary Study (Keith Fuller) a. Goals are to analyze current saturations and penetrations of energy efficiency (EE), assess maximum 10-year G&E technical potential of EE, estimate achievable potential of EE, assess current accomplishment of achievable potential of EE, and test sensitivity of realized EE. b. The ASSET Framework, capabilities, decision states, and model features were described. c. Issues are geographic segments, emerging technologies, measures, and peak impact definition. 2. California Industrial Energy Efficiency Potential Analysis (Fred Coito) a. The study’s approach is quasi bottom up and looks at bundled measures. b. Data sources are utility data, 1998 MECS, 1998 DOE Motors Assessment, Non-Residential Market Study Tracking System (NRMSTS), and Lawrence Berkeley National Labs (LBNL) c. Results will include EE potential estimates, related cost effectiveness estimates, and EE supply curves (in collaboration with LBNL), and will be integrated with the Itron study Keith’s and Fred’s presentations, respectively, are located on the CALMAC website: http://www.calmac.org/events/EE_Potential_Summary_Study.ppt http://www.calmac.org/events/Industrial_Potential_10-27.ppt Discussion: Draft results from these related projects will be available in December 2004 and January 2005. A final report will be available at the end of the first quarter of 2005. Next CALMAC Meetings The last two meetings of CALMAC for 2004 will be held on November 17 and December 15. It is anticipated that the November 17 meeting may address the follow-on issues/homework that may spill over from the November 10, EM&V Protocol Workshop.
