(An eBook reader can be a software application for use on a computer such as Microsoft's free Reader application, or a book-sized computer that is used solely as a reading device such as Nuvomedia's Rocket eBook.) Users can purchase an eBook on diskette or CD, but the most popular method of getting an eBook is to purchase a downloadable file of the eBook (or other reading material) from a Web site (such as Barnes and Noble) to be read from the user's computer or reading device.

US Department of Energy's Uniform Methods Project

  1. 1. 1Uniform Methods ProjectJointly managed by the DOE Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy UNIFORM METHODS PROJECT Uniform Methods Project Overview for EPATEE October 9, 2019 Charles “Chuck” Kurnik National Renewable Energy Laboratory
  2. 2. 2Uniform Methods Project Current EM&V Practice There are multiple ways to calculate energy savings for the same energy efficiency measure or program. – Lack of methodological consistency leads to difficulty understanding and comparing results. – There is a general lack of transparency about the assumptions and details of savings calculations.
  3. 3. 3Uniform Methods Project Why is This Project Needed? Seventeen Technical Reference Manuals (TRMs) have been identified, covering 21 states and D.C. (as of Spring 2012) Different methods for calculating savings for same measures Savings estimates for same measures varied widely with no clear explanation of the source Widespread use of the UMP protocols could provide consistency across TRMs
  4. 4. 4Uniform Methods Project What is This Project? Develop Savings Calculation Protocols for Energy Efficiency Measures and Programs – Addresses most common residential and commercial efficiency measures in incentive programs – Presents step-by-step calculations for determining gross savings – Includes additional sections to address cross-cutting evaluation requirements
  5. 5. 5Uniform Methods Project Project Goals & Benefits Create greater consistency of savings calculations – Quickly establish good M&V practices – Facilitate meaningful comparisons Provide transparency reduces uncertainty Support development of best practices for energy efficiency – Sets data requirements early on – Confidence when setting and meeting savings targets Provide educational value to broad stakeholder community – Protocols identify key inputs – Documentation of methods and calculations – Educating those new to EM&V
  6. 6. 6Uniform Methods Project Intended Audience • Jurisdictions with no existing protocols or TRMs • Regulators • Program administrators • Implementers • Evaluators • Three primary pathways for adoption • Formally by regulators • Adopted by program administrators and provided to implementers and evaluators • Recommended to clients by evaluators
  7. 7. 7Uniform Methods Project Project Organization Protocols developed in collaboration with energy efficiency program stakeholders: – Regulators – Program administrators – EM&V consultants (including the major U.S. firms that do a large portion of efficiency evaluations) Industry review process allowed for input from all stakeholders Public review process allowed for input from all interested parties
