Webinar and Discussion: NASEO-NARUC Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings (GEB) Working Group - Update on State Technical Assistance Resources and Projects

June 25, 2021, 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET

This webinar will provide and update on new Working Group resources and National Lab technical assistance.

New resources include:

  • Guidance document to support state estimates of demand flexibility potential
  • Guidance document to inform demand flexibility investments for state and local government office buildings, with supporting analysis that:
    • Identifies the highest value demand flexibility measures by U.S. region
    • Characterizes cost savings
    • Estimates cost and emissions reductions for a package of demand flexibility measures
  • Technical brief on Pilot Considerations for Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings in Washington and a similar brief for Hawaii
  • Technical assistance for Working Group members
    • Arizona Corporation Commission Staff - Review of draft request for proposals filed by Arizona Public Service for aggregated distributed demand-side resources
    • Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection - Opportunities to incorporate efficiency and demand flexibility into utilities’ Conservation and Load Management plans
    • Public Service Commission of Wisconsin - Opportunities to use energy efficiency and demand flexibility toward achieving the state's zero-carbon goals.

There will be time for questions and discussion at the end of the presentations. We will also ask for your input on additional topics for peer-to-peer sharing, guidance documents or technical assistance, such as incorporating demand flexibility in energy efficiency resource standards, appliance standards, state goals for carbon dioxide reductions and energy efficiency portfolios.

This event will be open to NASEO-NARUC GEB Working Group member states (whose points-of-contact [POCs] will receive a Zoom registration link). If you are from a WG state but not our POC list or from a non-WG state but are interested in joining, please contact Rodney Sobin rsobin@naseo.org, Ed Carley ecarley@naseo.org, or GEB@naseo.org.
