  • What is the best way to aggregate hourly savings for portfolios of buildings?
  • Are there any drawbacks to using the sum of individual building hourly savings (from the TOWT model for example)?
  • Can using the aggregated portfolio load for modeling provide more stability and confidence in results?

Summary of portfolio loadshape discussion (more details in the Week 20 meeting:

  • Assigning value to hourly savings is driven by the valuation scheme; we tested several schemes with different types of measure savings to highlight the difference in value that is captured by each scheme.


  • In general, using constant or step valuation schemes for peak hours are simple to implement but may not capture the full value of energy savings in off-peak hours and in shoulder seasons. Continuous valuation schemes (e.g. avoided costs) give a more accurate valuation of energy efficiency and can be used to drive desirable behavior in market actors.
