NESP: Methods, Tools and Resources Handbook 

Website

Overview

Read the handbook which provides technical information on how benefits and costs of DER investments can be quantified (monetized or otherwise), with links to resources and tools.

The 250+ page Methods, Tools and Resources Handbook for Quantifying DER Impacts for Benefit-cost Analysis (“MTR handbook”) serves as a companion document to the 2020 National Standard Practice Manual (NSPM).

While the NSPM provides guidance on identifying what benefits and costs should be accounted for in a jurisdiction’s primary cost-effectiveness test, the MTR handbook provides technical information on how benefits and costs of DER investments can be quantified (monetized or otherwise), with links to resources and tools.
