The RTF has asked staff/CAT to develop a measure for connected thermostats in commercial buildings. Since there are many potential measures that could reasonably be called “Commercial Connected Thermostats,” the CAT sought additional direction at October RTF meeting. This thread is a continuation of that discussion. Our primary objective is to obtain feedback on the type(s) of RTF Commercial Connected T-stat measure(s) that would be useful to the region.
To the extent possible, we hope to keep the present discussion focused on the broad shape of the measure(s) rather than the details of how the measure(s) should be constructed. After we get direction on the type(s) of measure(s) to pursue, we can start working to resolve things like first-year savings, delivery verification, persistence, and research strategy.
