NYSERDA's Indirect Benefits Framework
This framework serves as a playbook on how to effectively evaluate benefits resulting from NYSERDA’s market transformation initiatives, by typology, taking into account the discrete theory and logic associated with these initiatives.
Specifically, the framework serves to:
- Outline a common approach to estimating indirect benefits that conforms with market transformation program evaluation best practices.
- Provide a resource for NYSERDA and evaluators to plan, design, and implement market evaluation activities in a manner that helps to ensure timely collection of the data required to reliably estimate and claim indirect benefits.
- Provide guidelines on how to identify and avoid or adjust double-counting of indirect benefits.
- Create a well-documented methodological approach that can help NYSERDA communicate with stakeholders.
