  • Best practices to ensure the perspectives of all key stakeholders are included in this development process;
  • How the public policy goals adopted by regulatory bodies shape portfolio development;
  • How evaluation, measurement and verification approaches can be designed and developed consistent with these goals to assess portfolio performance—e.g., with respect to net and gross energy demand savings and avoided emissions;
