On Tuesday, October 18th the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) convened its biannual Energy Efficiency Implementation Project (EEIP) meeting (EEIP Docket 38578). For those not familiar with these public meetings, they were developed as a forum for utilities, PUCT and EM&V staff, and stakeholders to learn about, discuss, and report back information on the various energy efficiency programs that utilities provide in the ERCOT market. The first half of Tuesday’s meeting followed this normal agenda format, including a review of key findings from the state’s and EM&V contractor, updates on the technical reference manual draft changes, and a discussion on a forward-looking low-income geographic tool used by Oncor Electric. Read on for our recap and details of the brainstorming session that followed in the afternoon.
