This assignment focuses on developing an effective-useful-life (EUL) assessment method, which involves (1) studying a program’s persistence by examining the technical and behavioural retention and degradation factors, and (2) attributing savings to a program’s market effects after an ECM’s EUL. 


This assignment should focus on developing an effective-useful-life (EUL) assessment method, which involves (1) studying a program’s persistence by examining the technical and behavioural retention and degradation factors, and (2) attributing savings to a program’s market effects after an ECM’s EUL. 


More specifically, this assignment will involve carrying out the following six main tasks: 

› Task 1 : Literature and Database Review 

› Task 2 : Sampling Design and Survey Development

› Task 3: Survey-based and Interview-based Data Collection 

› Task 4: Recommendation on How to Attribute Energy Savings Post-EUL

› Task 5: Recommendations on How to Adjust ECMs’ Previously Assigned Ex-ante EULs 

› Task 6: Final Reporting
