NASEO Webinar: Benefit-Cost Analysis for Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings (GEBs) and Other Distributed Energy Resources (DERs)

May 4, 2021, 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET
Webinar/Virtual Meeting

This presentation will highlight the National Standard Practice Manual for Benefit-Cost Analysis of Distributed Energy Resources (NSPM for DERs), sharing an overview of its guiding principles and framework for developing a Jurisdiction-Specific Test (JST) that can be used by utility, state, and other programs. The presentation will include guidance for how to conduct a benefit-cost assessment (BCA) for multiple on-site DERs, such as grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs), including key common BCA factors and challenges, and provide an illustrative GEB BCA case study, addressing interactive effects between DERs and demand flexibility.  

This webinar is offered under the aegis of the NASEO-NARUC Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings (GEB) Working Group. For more information, please contact Rodney Sobin or Ed Carley.
