Context for Recommendation:
Page 18 of the May 2nd ACR describes the purpose of ICA WG; "the working group serves two main purposes: (1) Monitor and Support Demonstration A and (2) Continue to Improve and refine the ICA methodology." The IOUs see exploration of detailed iterative approaches as a possible improvement and refinement to ICA which we are looking to be explored in the demo through a comparative assessment. For additional background addressing key questions on yesterday’s call, please see the background Q/A PDF attached to the email.
"The ICA WG respectfully requests the CPUC clarify or make changes to the May 2nd DRP ACR to allow the utilities to use alternative methods (i.e. streamlined approach and iterative approach) in Demonstration A to allow the ICA Working Group to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of the alternatives. This comparative assessment in Demonstration A will inform and enable an ICA WG recommendation on ICA improvements to the CPUC that could be adopted in a Q1 2017 ICA Decision consistent with the ICA WG tasks in the ACR."
