AVERT Tutorial: Set Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Impacts

The Set Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Impacts worksheet guides you through the process of creating a load impact profile, which depicts load reductions expected from EE/RE programs.

To do so, you can input your own data, choose to reduce annual electricity load by a constant rate, a percentage of hours, and/or provide a renewable energy proxy.

In this section of the AVERT training, you will learn how to select the best load impact profile for your needs.

Note: Videos in this training module were developed using a previous version of AVERT with different regions. Most of the features and functionality of the latest version of AVERT are the same as shown here, but a few aspects, including the AVERT regions, may differ. EPA plans to update the videos; we apologize for the inconvenience in the meantime. For more details about AVERT’s current features and assumptions, see the current AVERT User Manual.
