PG&E More than a Million Offering

For Pacific Gas and Electric Company, HMG is managing the "More Than A Million" (MTM) partnership between PG&E and large commercial customers. Under MTM, PG&E is offering a 'fleet-wide' approach to energy efficiency rebates and incentives for the portfolio of buildings occupied by these large commercial customers. HMG leads the Dedicated Technical Support Team that provides coordinated and streamlined energy efficiency and demand response services. In return, the customer has agreed to a nominal target of saving at least 1 MM watts of electricity through participation in PG&E energy efficiency programs.

Very Low Energy Comfort Systems 

For Southern California Edison, HMG is conducting research on technologies and strategies, collectively called Very Low Energy Comfort Systems (VLEC), that assist residential buildings to meet the needs for thermal comfort while significantly  reducing or eliminating the need for traditional HVAC. The goal of this research project is to establish the feasibility of VLEC strategies for various California climate zones, research impacts of VLEC strategies on human thermal comfort, and determine impacts of microclimate modification on VLEC systems.

Energy Benchmarking Workgroup

BenchmarkingHMG chairs the Benchmarking Team, tasked with working with California utilities and State agencies. The goal of the team is to benchmark, based on California Energy Commission guidelines, all State-owned buildings in order to set the baseline and track progress towards the Governorís Executive Order for a 20% reduction in energy consumption in California State buildings by 2015. 

Codes and Standards Research and Policy Development

Striped Image SectionFor Pacific Gas & Electric Company, HMG is managing a team experts to develop proposed modifications to the California building energy efficiency standards.  This work includes evaluating the energy savings from the measure, its cost-effectiveness, feasibility and barriers to adoption.  The proposals include specific code language and modifications to the alternative compliance method (ACM) calculations  

Oregon's Commercial and Industrial Lighting Market Assessment

For the Energy Trust of Oregon, HMG is conducting a market assessment of Oregonís commercial and industrial lighting markets, and a review of Energy Trustís involvement and influence in those markets.  The assessment will identify energy savings opportunities that are good candidates for inclusion in Energy Trust programs by reviewing existing literature and conducting and analyzing expert interviews.   

EDR Green Design Calculator

For Pacific Gas & Electric Companyís Energy Design Resources, HMG is developing a Guidelines for Energy Impacts of Green Design and a Green Design Calculator for use in evaluation of energy and demand impacts of green building measures not typically accounted for in California Title 24 building energy standards or building energy efficiency programs. Green building practices included in the study are site microclimate modification,  water efficiency, and building materials and construction methods.
