***Reference Manual Complete***
The Missouri Technical Reference Manual (TRM) has recently been completed and is a Word document containing agreed upon methodologies for calculating electric and gas energy savings achieved from the installation of energy efficiency technologies. Over 100 common, prescriptive energy efficiency measures were included. Each measure included the following type of information: name and description, definition of baseline case, definition of efficient case, measure identification, effective dates, electric savings (kW, kWh), gas savings (therms, peak therms), algorithms, assumptions, net to gross adjustment, examples, supporting documentation, measure life and cost, persistence, loadshape, coincident factor, and interactive effects. Use of a statewide TRM by multiple investor-owned utilities ensures consistent calculation and reporting of energy and demand savings for like measures.
