Evaluation in the Context of the Big & Bold World Context is changing to much more EE-friendly! Private & Public engaged/interested/taking action 30 years of efforts: Infrastructure Harvest Time! Big-Bold Efforts Being Considered Seek multi-partner involvement Focus on much longer-term results Issues for Evaluation: Attribution of savings? NTG? Need to focus on data collection & methods in this new world!

Codes & Standards: New Evaluation Findings & Updated Ex-Ante Estimates Doug Mahone
Discussion on Attribution and Role of NTG If our purpose is to maximize cost-effective energy savings to society, Can evaluation still provide credible attribution findings for Portfolio & Program optimization? Can NTG (free riders &/or spillover) be accurately estimated in today’s context? What key conditions are needed for accurate estimation of NTG and/or attribution? Where do these key conditions still exist? Where don’t they?
Discussion on Alternative Methods for Attribution For situations where NTG no longer is deemed credible, Can alternative evaluation methods still provide credible attribution findings for Portfolio & Program optimization? Do these alternate methods need to be specific by customer segment, market situation, programs and/or measures? What key data are needed for accurate estimation of attribution? Do we collect this data already? What data is still needed?
Action Plan – What Next? For situations where NTG no longer is deemed credible for attribution of savings, How can the evaluation community determine the best course to follow? What are the roles of key players within California and Nationwide? What are key action items and who will be responsible for them? What key deadlines need results of this work?
