Guidehouse helps utilities maximize the effectiveness of their investments in energy efficiency and distributed energy resources (DER) programs. We leverage advanced analytics to identify, establish, and implement programs that deliver high locational, temporal, and/or performance-based value, helping clients improve existing energy efficiency or home energy report programs, establish pay-for-performance programs, move the needle on decarbonization, provide support to low income communities, and encourage innovation.
How We Help
Flexibility Strategy We partner with clients to develop strategies that address grid challenges and capture growth opportunities through demand flexibility. We work collaboratively to bridge the gap from the current state to meeting target objectives.
Program Design Guidehouse designs innovative programs by focusing on outcomes and leveraging market innovations. Examples include pay-for-performance, non-wires alternatives, rate modernization, and advanced energy efficiency and DER programs.
Program Implementation and Operation We help clients deliver customer-centric programs by employing a lean administration approach to minimize unnecessary overhead costs and leave more funds available to incentivize outcomes. We offer support in regulatory processes to gain approval, procurement of flexibility resources, program management, monitoring and reporting, and continuous improvement.
Flexibility Analytics Our experts leverage advanced analytics to maximize program outcomes and streamline program administration, allowing us to quantify and target flexibility opportunities, target specific customers and measures, automate measurement and verification (M&V), and facilitate transactions with providers of flexibility resources.
