Achieving high realization rates (RRs) in impact evaluations is a challenge for PAs. Typical large customer programs in Massachusetts and California yield gross RRs of 44%–70% for electric savings and 50%–70% for fuel savings. Ryan Collins, our featured speaker, works on an implementation team that has successfully delivered large customer C&I energy efficiency programs in Maine for more than a decade. The program’s most recent impact evaluation yielded a gross RR of 96.5% for electric savings and 86% for fuel savings. Ryan will share the delivery practices performed by the team that achieve high RRs.
