The RTF has issued six requests for proposals to support work anticipated in its 2022 Work Plan. The following are answers to questions that have come up since the requests have been released in an effort to provide all proposers with access to the same information.
If you have additional questions please reach out to Jennifer Light at JLight@nwcouncil.org
For the Resiliency and Flexibility Valuation Studies RFP, clarification was asked for concerning how these values [resiliency and flexibility] would be applied across all potential resources, including energy efficiency, demand side resources and supply side resources; and what was expected of the contractor with respect to addressing the non-demand side resources.
- While the RTF is focused on energy efficiency and demand response, ultimately, the hope is that any valuation of resiliency and flexibility would be something that the Council could leverage systematically across all resources in future power planning. The contractor doing this work would be asked to be mindful of the implications of any approach on the ability to potentially replicate this for other supply side resources. There is expertise across the Council on these other resources that could be leveraged as needed to support this work.
