Cal TF 2017 Subcommittees will focus on matters related to the electronic Technical Reference Manual (eTRM) development, including governance, technical policies and requirements and technology-specific subcommittees, described further below.

eTRM: The eTRM will be a transparent, well-documented statewide repository of all California deemed Measures. It will include savings values, other measure parameters, and all supporting documentation (studies, calculations, modeling approaches, etc.). Expected users of the eTRM include California’s utilities, both investor-owned and publicly-owned, regulators, and implementers. The eTRM and its contents, once approved by the California Public Utilities Commission, will replace current systems used to track information about deemed Measures, including DEER, Preliminary Ex Ante Review database (PRdb), Ex Ante database (EAdb), READi, utility non-DEER Workpapers, the POU Technical Reference Manual, and a myriad of internal utility systems used to track deemed Measure information.

Governance Subcommittee: Will review policies and procedures related to Workpaper development and governance of the eTRM, including common QA/QC standards, a new measure review process, and governance of the eTRM. 

Technical Policies and Requirements Subcommittee: The Technical Policies and Requirements Subcommittee will identify technical policies and requirements for deemed measure development. The goal of this committee will be to identify and memorialize technical policies and requirements in a single document to make it easier for workpaper developers and others to understand and apply applicable policies and requirements, and, where appropriate, to recommend changes. 

Technology-Specific Subcommittees: These committees will be technology-specific. The committees will focus on review of existing measures that are being consolidated into single measures. The subcommittees will be asked to review and comment on the technology category as well as measure-specific issues, and will recommend how to harmonize differences across similar workpapers. The Measure Consolidation Process is further described in Cal TF Technical Position Paper #6, Overlapping Measure Consolidation Process (Prior to eTRM Placement). A flow chart of the Measure Consolidation process is available here. In reviewing technology category and measure-specific issues, the subcommittees may recommend changes to existing measures and measure categories for regulator review and approval.
