The purpose of this subcommittee is to inform the RTF about the current state of knowledge regarding reliability of savings estimates based on data-driven models of commercial building-level energy consumption.
The subcommittee's activities are organized around a set of findings and recommendations drawn from a white paper (linked below) written by Bill Koran and Josh Rushton. The current set of (draft) findings and recommendations are listed in the paper's executive summary. We intend to present these findings and recommendations (possibly revised) to the RTF for discussion and, ideally, formal endorsement.
Our immediate goal is a clear set of subcommittee recommendations to the RTF. For this, we ask you to pay particular attention to the draft findings and recommendations in the document. As you read these items, ask yourself whether, as a member of the subcommittee, you would object to these statements being characterized as subcommittee findings and subcommittee recommendations.
Please provide feedback to Josh Rushton (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, April 12, and feel free to reach out to Josh and Jennifer Light (JLight@nwcouncil.org) if you have questions or concerns.
After this review period, we will compile the feedback and organize a subcommittee meeting to report out and resolve outstanding questions. Thanks in advance for your time and attention.
