In 2012, Research Into Action and our subcontractor, Sergio Dias Consulting, are collaborating on the process evaluation of the Energy Trust of Oregon's 2011-2012 Production Efficiency Program FOR the industrial sector. Our key research objective is to better understand the factors that result in some projects not progressing from the audit or agreement stages to project completion. Our process evaluation is studying the program as a whole, as well as several of its individual tracks: Custom, Retrocommissioning, Boiler Tune-Ups, Corporate Strategic Energy Management, Refrigeration Operator Certification, Small Industrial and Prescriptive, Green Rewind, and Lighting. Our evaluation will address how the program has grown and changed and how new tracks have been incorporated into the program. Our research also includes characterizing the industrial sector through secondary sources and interviews with nonparticipating firms. We also will conduct a market assessment of nonparticipating industrial firms to learn about their awareness of the program and explore some of their energy-use investments and behaviors. In addition, we will ask them about their perceptions of the need for and value of incentives; the effect of codes on their investment decisions; their awareness and understanding of, and interest in, using the Oregon Business Energy Tax Credit; and their awareness and understanding of, and interest in using incentives from the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance and investor-owned utilities.
