California’s investor-owned utilities (IOUs) and Evergreen Economics invite you to attend a webinar presentation of the draft research plan (see below) for upcoming process evaluations for the initial nine Local Government Partnerships (LGPs).
This webinar presents the IOUs’ staggered approach to evaluating Local Government Partnerships, in which a subset of Partnerships will be evaluated each year. Over the course of four or five years, each Local Government Partnership will have its opportunity to receive a dedicated process evaluation that includes documentation of its existing operations, and allows evaluators to make customized recommendations for program improvement. The IOUs and Evergreen Economics, an independent evaluation firm, will present a draft research plan on the common scope of work for all LGP evaluations, and solicit feedback from participants. Local government stakeholders will learn what to expect when their LGP is evaluated, in turn.
This two-hour meeting will be held on June 20, 2016 at 3:00 PM PDT. The agenda for the meeting is as follows:
- Overview of the multi-year “rolling” LGP process evaluations
- Overview of process evaluation goals
- Present general research plan for the initial nine process evaluations
- Suggestions for process evaluation research issues (existing LGP activities only)
The resulting reports from these evaluations will document unique success and challenges related to each LGP’s implementation, innovative activities, and make LGP-specific recommendations to improve implementation.
Draft Research Plan
The team seeks your feedback on a draft research plan posted on http://www.energydataweb.com/cpuc one week prior to the webinar, where comments will be accepted until one week after the webinar. You can find the draft by searching “Comprehensive Process Evaluations of the PG&E, SCE, SCG and SDG&E Local Government Partnerships: First Wave.” (or, search “LGP” and find it in the list.)
