Add "OR" between Case 2 and Case 3.
Replace Case 3 header and all subsequent requirements with the following text:
"Case 3. Load Flexibility and Management Strategies (1 point)
Analyze the building’s annual load shape and peak load based based on metered electricity use and electric utility bills. Review the regional grid load profile using the metric of peak load or peak carbon emissions. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) AVoided Emissions and geneRation Tool (AVERT) provides regional grid emissions data; local utilities may also provide this data.
Coordinate review of building load shape and peak load with review of the regional grid profile to identify the best value load management strategies that the building can provide.
Implement one or more of the load flexibility and management strategies described below. All projects must install interval recording meters with communications and the ability for the building automation system to accept an external price signal.
Load Flexibility and Management Strategies:
• Peak Load Optimization: demonstrate that strategy reduces on-peak load by at least 10% as compared to peak electrical demand (1 point)
• Flexible Operating Scenarios: demonstrate that strategy moves at least 10% of peak load by a time period of 2 hours (1 point)
• On-site thermal and/or electricity storage: demonstrate that strategy reduces on-peak load by at least 10% as compared to peak electrical demand (1 point)
• Grid resilience technologies: project served by utilities with resilience programs in place, which leverage strategies such as islanding and part-load operation, automatically achieve this credit (1 point)
Include installed technology in the Current Facilities Requirements and Operations and Maintenance Plan. Include load flexibility and management strategies and installed technologies in the building systems manual.
Contact local utility representatives to discuss participation in future DR programs and to inform utility of building load flexibility and management strategies."
