RTF Operative Guidelines. At its January 2018 meeting, the RTF adopted updates to its Guidelines for estimating Savings, Costs, Non-Energy Benefits and Lifetime. These Guidelines describe how the RTF will judge whether the quality of the data and analytical methods are sufficient to produce reliable savings estimates. This included updates throughout all components of the Guidelines, with a focus on the Roadmap and Costs and Benefits. The RTF also approved a technical edit of the Guidelines to combine all volumes into a single document. This technical edit was completed in early May. The link below will take you to the current version of the Guidelines
