Utilities that are struggling with planning for exogenous impacts on energy consumption.
COVID-19 has upended the energy efficiency and demand flexibility industry’s assumptions about energy use and rendered traditional Measurement and Verification (M&V) all but useless. Longer-term trends of decarbonization, electrification, and increased renewable, intermittent generation and other exogenous factors create similar challenges to understanding and valuing flexibility interventions.
In this webinar, Recurve CEO Matt Golden and Director of Policy & Emerging Markets Carmen Best explain how the new GRIDmeter project successfully used privacy protected utility data to identify comparison groups in order to differentiate the way in which COVID impacted different kinds of commercial and residential energy consumers -- and how utilities can apply these insights immediately to understand the impacts of COVID and other exogenous factors on their own programs.
Alice Havenar-Daughton of MCE will be joining the discussion to talk about the value of this analysis to the evolution of their energy programs.
