This post marks the release of the whitepaper: Evolving Cost-Effectiveness Policy and Tools to Enable Modern Energy Efficiency and Demand-Side Management
In order for P4P efficiency to work, we need transparent and reproducible measurement that can be verified by all parties.
NMEC and open-source approaches are less expensive and performed better in testing than proprietary tools for evaluating efficiency in commercial buildings.
What is accuracy? What is precision? The Recurve team shares an internal discussion on why these terms need to be questioned when it comes to efficiency.
California has started to measure and value efficiency based on metered impacts to load shape rather than monthly savings and modeled demand impacts.
Non-routine engineering adjustments often inflate savings. Here's what to do instead.
Different parties to energy efficiency benefit from different forms of value that require different metrics.
