Measuring the EE Power Resource

Quantifying Momentum Savings is more than meeting the energy-efficiency target. BPA is trying to understand how energy efficiency is changing the power grid. Through its research, the team collects rich information on how much energy efficiency is happening in the total market, which is used by BPA and the Council to help plan for future generation and capacity needs. Additionally, BPA’s research gathers invaluable market intelligence on how the market works to inform our market models.

Supporting Research

In addition to the core markets we study to quantify Momentum Savings, BPA has sponsored numerous research studies including a Scientific Irrigation Scheduling current practice baseline study, a study of national and regional key accounts, and a study of the opportunities for efficiency in the agriculture irrigation market.
