Presented by: Dr. Katherine Johnson, Johnson & Associates
There are numerous non-energy benefits (NEBs) associated with energy efficiency measures that can get transferred to participating customers, to society, and to the utility. Drawing on best practices, statewide reviews of water and fuel costs, the Parties Working Collaboratively (PWC) developed several equations designed to accurately capture the non-energy benefits that are not currently reflected in these measure installations. The methodologies, algorithms and assumptions used to calculate these NEBs are described fully in Protocol L of the Arkansas Technical Reference Manual, Version 6.0. This is a rare example of of when quantifying NEBs is contained as part of jurisdictions Technical Reference Manual’s calculations.
This presentation will present an overview of the approach to quantify four “easily quantifiable” NEBs”
– Non-Energy Benefits for Electricity, Natural Gas, and Liquid Propane (“Other fuels”)
–  Non-Energy Benefits for Water Savings
–  Non-Energy Benefits of Avoided and Deferred Equipment Replacement Cost including:
–  Two Replace on Burnout Scenarios with both static and changing baselines
– Non Energy Benefits  in early-replacement scenarios.
