Description 

This project will conduct an analysis of a backcasting analysis tool targeted at the Residential Direct Install program which offers a focused package of measures for residential energy efficiency. The tool presents a unique opportunity to directly gauge the combined benefits that could be achieved through an integrated EE/DR program, and to compare those benefits to the isolated EE intervention. The analysis will also assess the impact on savings and cost-effectiveness of various targeting strategies based on customers’ pre-program usage characteristics. This backcast can help assess the potential improvements from targeting and identify the most effective strategies.
