The GRID working group will be focused on the extensions of CalTRACK site-based savings methods to account for exogenous population level changes so facilitate non-wires alternatives, forecasting of met impact to load shape, and claimable savings. Attribution, including net as well as non-routine events, and persistence of savings are among the core methods this working group is considering to tackle to create initial guidance for the Technical Steering Committee.
The GRID Working Group meets the first Wednesday of the month. The meetings are a forum to discuss on-going progress on updates under consideration, testing, or ready for approval by the working group.
GitHub is the primary tool for collaboration and documentation, and a Technical Chair facilitates the processes described in the working group charter.
Working Group Boundaries:
- GRID will tackle consistent methods for adjustments to avoided energy use to reflect incremental grid impacts
- Use case may be site-specific quantification adjustments or population level adjustments (or both)
- Potential standardized adjustments include for non-routine events, net impacts (participants v. population), persistence
- Pay for performance program savings claims, NWA, payments or forecasting inputs
