2022 SCE C&S Planning and Coordination Key Initiatives ReportProject Number SCE23PC0001 Organization SCE End-use Other Sector Cross Cutting Project Year(s) 2022 - 2022
The 2022 C&S Planning and Coordination Key Initiatives Report presents the activities and achievements of the P&C subprogram in the program’s five elements: Decarbonization, Grid Harmonization, Code Harmonization, Strategic Planning and Coordination, and Program Coordination. For the Decarbonization element, P&C presents their work in the Advanced Water Heating Initiative (AWHI) and the Advanced Heat Pump Coalition (AHPC), and their role in coordinating between SCE’s transportation electrification and building electrification efforts. P&C developed the Building Inventory GIS (BIG) database and BE project tracker to characterize building stock and electrification projects within SCE territory. For the Grid Harmonization element, P&C coordinated efforts between SCE’s T&D division and the building electrification efforts, including efforts by SCE’s Emerging Markets and Technologies group. P&C conducted a foundational load profile analysis and developed BUGMAP (Bottoms Up Grid Model Advanced Profiles) to support load forecasting, and initiated a study on the impact of building electrification on resiliency. P&C collaborated with T&D to develop a grid harmonization roadmap. P&C’s code harmonization efforts include conducting a central heat pump water heater field evaluation, conducting a customer electric appliance preference survey, coordinating the testing of Energy Star induction cooktops, and ongoing support and participation in ASHRAE discussions. P&C’s strategic planning coordination efforts include coordination through CalBEM working groups, initiation of a building performance standards (BPS) study, ongoing market and technology tracking, and coordination with the CEC. P&C coordinated across programs including the CEC BUILD and other new construction programs. P&C coordinated through venues such as the ETCC and the ZNE/Decarbonization EM&V project coordination group, with an eye on serving SCE’s Equity and Social Justice (ESJ) customer segments. P&C also developed internal curricula called the Building Electrification Academy to help SCE employees better serve their customers’ electrification needs. P&C continued participation in the Architecture at Zero competition, and developed an innovative virtual reality experience to help customers understand the benefits of clean energy smart homes.
