3 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Rules of Engagement  *6 to mute – please do not put us on “Hold”  Want to encourage a conversation  Process not longer than it needs to be  Try not to get bogged down on ancillary issues 3

4 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Rules of Engagement  Goal: consensus-based recommendations that address the issues outlined in the scoping document  Consensus: an acceptable resolution, one that can be supported even if not the "favorite" of each individual 4

5 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Overview of Progress to Date  Held kickoff meeting March 4th  Discussed issues 10, 12, and 13  Grouped Issues 12 and 13, which both relate to timing of reporting, and addressed them first  Developed draft recommendations for Issues 12 and 13 for reporting and forecasting of savings and expenditures 5

6 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Action Items  BPA was asked to review the draft workgroup recommendations for Issues 12 and 13 and refine them before the April 1 meeting (completed)  BPA was asked to do some analysis of the end- of-rate-period ‘hockey stick’ (partially completed)  Utilities were asked to provide their perspective on the hockey stick as well  Other? 6

7 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Review of Issues 12 and 13  12: Timing of Utility Reporting to BPA (BPA generated)  13: Reporting and Consistency of Utility Self-Funded Savings (BPA generated) 7

8 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Review of Issues 12 and 13  Summary: BPA would like to receive regular reporting of BPA- funded and self-funded savings to allow tracking of progress toward its targets. BPA would like to continue to receive regular forecasts of savings to also help with this tracking. In addition, BPA would like to receive periodic forecasts of expenditures to satisfy BPA Finance needs and ensure EEI funds are fully utilized. 8

9 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Review of Issues 12 and 13  Options: Status quo – utilities have flexibility to report when they want More regular reporting of savings; regular forecasting of savings, expenditures 9

10 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Draft Recommendations from Workgroup on Issues 12 and 13  Focused on three areas: Reporting savings Forecasting savings Forecasting expenditures 10

11 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Reporting Savings – Workgroup Recommendations  What’s included: Actual EEI-funded (invoiced) savings and self-funded savings  Frequency: Best practice is monthly reporting, minimum is every six months  Utilities affected: All  How implemented: Via IS 2.0/NED  Reporting interval a requirement?: Unclear 11

12 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Reporting Savings – Workgroup Recommendations  Rationale: Some earlier requirements on timing of reporting are no longer in place (e.g., every 6 months for rate credit) Some utilities report on regular monthly basis; other utilities want to report less often BPA wants to establish minimum reporting frequency for all utilities to provide better visibility to actual savings and progress toward our targets 12

13 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Reporting Savings – BPA Refinements  What’s included: Actual EEI-funded (invoiced) savings and self-funded savings  Frequency: Best practice is monthly reporting, minimum is every six months quarter  Utilities affected: All  How implemented: Via IS 2.0/NED  Reporting interval a requirement? Unclear No, it’s a request -- except for EEI reporting at end of rate period, which is required.  If self-management of savings is adopted, how would utilities view a quarterly reporting requirement? 13

14 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Forecasting Savings – Workgroup Recommendations  What’s included: EEI-funded and self-funded savings  Frequency: Quarterly projections (or most quarters) for fiscal year  Utilities affected: 20-largest utilities currently but could be expanded  How implemented: Through EERs currently  Forecasting a requirement?: Unclear 14

15 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Forecasting Savings – Workgroup Recommendations  Rationale: Current participation by 20-largest utilities in providing voluntary projections is somewhat inconsistent BPA would like more consistent and complete forecasting 15

16 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Forecasting Savings – BPA Refinements  What’s included: EEI-funded and self-funded savings  Frequency: Quarterly projections (or most quarters) for fiscal year for rate period  Utilities affected: 20-largest utilities currently but could be expanded  How implemented: Through EERs currently, but may build this functionality into NED  Forecasting a requirement?: Unclear No, it’s a request 16

17 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Forecasting Expenditures – Workgroup Recommendations  What’s included: EEI expenditures  Frequency: 2nd quarter of each fiscal year covering the final 2 quarters of the fiscal year  Utilities affected: TBD  How implemented: Through EERs initially  Forecasting a requirement?: Unclear 17

18 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Forecasting Expenditures – Workgroup Recommendations  Rationale: Forecast in first year of rate period will provide data needed by BPA Finance to provide Congressional budget submission. In return, BPA Finance will continue to offer utilities within-rate-period spending flexibility Forecast in second year of rate period will help EE identify EEI funds that may not get spent. 18

19 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Forecasting Expenditures – BPA Refinements No formal requirement or request at this time, but this is still a need and may be revisited if other forecasting tools are inadequate. EERs will continue to request EEI forecasts periodically to help with budget planning.  What’s included: EEI expenditures  Frequency: 2nd quarter of each fiscal year covering the last 2 quarters of the fiscal year Periodic  Utilities affected: TBD All  How implemented: Through EERs initially  Forecasting a requirement?: Unclear No 19

20 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Review of Issue 10  10 (expanded): BPA Requirements for Implementing, Reporting, and Verifying Utility Self-funded Savings (utility generated)  Summary: BPA has the same requirements in the Implementation Manual for implementing, reporting, and verifying self-funded savings as for BPA-funded savings. Can these requirements for self-funded savings be streamlined? 20

21 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Review of Issue 10  Options: Status quo Reduced requirements for self-funded savings 21

22 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Sub-Issues  Requirements for implementing and reporting self-funded savings  Requirements for verifying self-funded savings  Reporting of non-reportable measures and projects  Terminology for describing self-funded savings 22

23 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Requirements for Implementing and Reporting Self-Funded Savings  Utility Perspective: Having the same requirements for implementing and reporting utility self-funded savings as for EEI-funded savings may be burdensome All parties want to ensure that public power’s share of the Council’s target is met 23

24 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Requirements for Implementing and Reporting Self-Funded Savings  BPA Perspective: Energy savings must meet requirements under Regional Dialogue contracts, IM Consistency in IM requirements between EEI-funded and self-funded savings ensures reliability and facilitates implementation QSSI process has focused on reducing requirements for custom projects, including ones self-funded 24

25 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Requirements for Implementing and Reporting Self-Funded Savings  Discussion: Does the workgroup support following IM requirements when implementing self-funded measures/projects and reporting savings? 25

26 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Requirements for Verifying Self-Funded Savings  Utility perspective  Having the same requirements for verification/ oversight of self-funded savings may be burdensome  BPA's role in verifying self-funded energy efficiency is somewhat flexible since BPA does not have the same fiduciary interest in assuring proper expenditure as it does with federal funds  All parties want to ensure the quality of the savings 26

27 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Requirements for Verifying Self-Funded Savings  BPA perspective  Energy savings must be verifiable and meet requirements under Regional Dialogue contracts and IM  Self-funded savings should be subject to the same oversight as EEI-funded savings to ensure the reliability of savings 27

28 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Requirements for Verifying Self-Funded Savings  Discussion: What is the group’s recommendation regarding BPA’s role in verifying self-funded savings? 28

29 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Reporting of Non-Reportable Measures and Projects  In the kickoff meeting several types of ‘non-reportables’ were mentioned: Utility self-funded measures that are not cost-effective using BPA’s calculations but otherwise meet BPA requirements RTF-approved measures that BPA hasn’t yet adopted Other measures BPA hasn’t approved New construction projects where incremental costs are not easily calculated 29

30 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Reporting of Non-Reportable Measures and Projects  Both BPA and utilities expressed interest in reducing non-reportable savings  Discussion: Are there any other types of non-reportables that utilities have concerns about? What are specific examples of the types of non-reportables that were mentioned? Can non-reportable savings be made reportable? What are the constraints? 30

31 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Terminology for Describing Self- Funded Savings  BPA adopted the terminology “self-funded savings” to refer to savings that met all of BPA’s program requirements  Some utilities have suggested changing the terminology to “utility-funded savings”  Discussion: How do utilities feel about this suggestion? 31

32 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Links to Other Workgroups  Workgroup 1, Model for Achieving Programmatic Savings: Under self-management of incentives, would need mechanism to ensure regular reporting of savings Can we clarify the terms “self-funded vs. self- managed?  Workgroup 2, Implementation Manual How can we accelerate BPA adoption of new measures including non-reportables? 32

33 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Next Steps  Additional background or analytical work needed?  Other recommendations? 33

34 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Next Steps  Meeting on April 22, 10:00-12:00 Will two hours be enough? Any other meetings needed?  Prepare meeting notes  Materials posted on BPA’s Post-2011 websitePost-2011 website  Other? 34
