Energy Efficiency Portfolio Risk Management: A Systematic, Data-Driven Approach for Timely Interventions to Maximize Results (Abstract Only)

Date Published: January 1, 2007     Document Type: Conference publication

This paper describes an approach for identifying, quantifying, and managing risk that maximizes the probability that PG&E will meet its energy and demand savings targets. This paper provides concrete examples of how both primary and secondary data have been used to modify various parameters (e.g. net-to-gross ratios, installed units) that adjust the forecast and assess the probability of not achieving the energy and demand targets. The simulation results guide the selection of actionable strategies to manage this risk. Continuous monitoring of key portfolio performance indicators (e.g. installation counts and levelized cost) help determine the success of each particular strategy. (Abstract only)

An Evaluation Framework for a Portfolio of Research, Development & Demonstration Programs (Abstract Only)

Date Published: January 1, 2007     Document Type: Conference publication

This paper addresses an approach used to evaluate a portfolio of research, development and demonstration (RD&D) programs administered at the State level. Data were assembled to measure progress of projects according to certain criteria and compiled into an “accomplishments packet” consisting of quantitative and qualitative information. The packet was distributed to peer reviewers to assess the significance of the accomplishments. The results of the assessment are discussed. The applicability of the approach to the various types of projects and technologies is also presented. (Abstract only)
