Technical Resource Manual (TRM)



The New York Standard Approach for Estimating Energy Savings from Energy Efficiency Programs - Residential, Multi-Family, and Commercial/Industrial, known as the Technical Resource Manual (TRM), provides a standardized, fair, and transparent approach for measuring program energy savings across New York State’s energy efficiency programs. To do so, the TRM provides standardized energy savings calculations and assumptions at the measure level for estimating energy and demand savings.

In the February 26, 2015 Order Adopting Regulatory Policy Framework and Implementation Plan in Case 14-M-0101, Proceeding on Motion of the Commission in Regard to Reforming the Energy Vision, the Commission required the utilities work collectively to support the maintenance of the New York State TRM.

    • TRM Management Committee (TRM MC): In response to the Order requirements, a Technical Resource Manual Management Committee (TRM MC) was established June 1, 2015 to assume the responsibility from the Department of Public Service (Staff), and to work collectively to support the maintenance of the New York State TRM.

      The TRM MC includes representation from each of New York's major electric and gas utilities, LIPA, and NYSERDA; officers of the TRM MC serve one-year terms, contact information is listed here:

    • TRM Management Plan: The management plan describes a process that ensures each utility and NYSERDA's input is considered, all changes to the TRM are transparent to Staff and stakeholders, and an updated TRM is filed annually in accordance with the Utility Energy Efficiency Program Cycle Guidance CE-01.
