Develop a better understanding of the capabilities, inputs and assumptions, and outputs of the CRA MRN/NEEM (macroeconomic) model that will be used to evaluate the 8 Macroeconomic Futures and sensitivities and the GE MAPS (production cost) model that will be used to analyze the Roll-Up Plan and the final 3 Transmission Build out Scenarios.
Identify concerns or issues, seek answers, make recommendations and report to EIPC Stakeholder Steering Committee (SSC) regarding the MRN/NEEM and GE MAPS modeling to be performed.
Identify with CRA the matrix of specific required inputs for MRN/NEEM to be provided by SSC and advise the SSC and Scenario Planning Work Group (SPWG) on model inputs, outputs, processes and limitations to assist them in the development of the 8 Macroeconomic Futures.
Coordinate with the Roll-Up Work Group (RUWG) to identify any issues that could impact model inputs, assumptions, modeling, or results.
In coordination with and within the parameters set by the SPWG, make recommendations to the SSC on the values for the inputs and assumptions to be used for modeling the 8 Macroeconomic Futures.
Identify as appropriate data or analyses needs
Work with resources (e.g. DOE / National Laboratories)
Collaborate with CRA to ensure model consistency
Please note that the final version of Scenario Solutions (including additions from Tasks 7 & 8) has been posted on the Modeling Results page (8-22-12).
