Document Description
There are eight critical Work Authorizations underway that would benefit from a six-month no-cost time extension to allow the California Energy Commission to fully benefit from the research project. The research derived from these outstanding work authorizations will provide much needed information and results in several areas that include Carbon Sequestration, Demand Response, Smart Grid Reliability, Energy Efficiency in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, Lighting, and Buildings, both commercial and residential. To stop these research projects now, prior to receiving all of the research results would not be cost effective and would incur the loss of United States Department of Energy funds. Also, it would fail to provide the information we need now and in the near future to make informed decisions regarding directions to take in the technology area mentioned above. If this extension is not approved, several new contracts will need to be initiated to complete this work and result in added cost to the California Energy Commission and the State of California.
