Request for Information (RFI) Opportunity by Energy Trust of Oregon
Energy Trust of Oregon, Inc. (Energy Trust) is issuing this Request for Information (RFI) as a means of technical discovery and information gathering. Respondents will provide information about potential platform solution(s) to effectively support a portfolio of individual meter-based, whole building energy usage regression models for commercial buildings, referred to in this RFI as a “the platform”. For the purpose of this RFI, “the platform” is a business application that uses server-based and/or cloud-based software and services to generate, update, and report on meter-based, whole building energy usage models for commercial buildings. Currently, Energy Trust uses an Excel-based Energy Trust of Oregon Performance Tracking Tool (referred to as the “PTT” in this RFI) to develop, optimize, and track meter-based, whole building energy usage regression models and calculate savings for Energy Trust’s Commercial Strategic Energy Management (SEM) and Pay for Performance (PfP) program offerings. These regression-based energy usage models are based upon industry standards outlined in International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) Option C and American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)-14 2014 and are governed by Energy Trust’s existing Commercial measurement and verification (M&V) guidelines for operations and maintenance (O&M) programs.
This RFI provides an overview of existing Energy Trust’s meter-based, whole building programs; the objectives for an enhanced energy model platform solution; a response template for RFI respondents; and an overview of existing energy model workflow.
Based on the information provided by respondents to this RFI as a result of this technical discovery and information gathering process, Energy Trust will determine next steps and may subsequently issue a competitive solicitation for services, products and/or equipment.
