The authors wish to acknowledge and express our appreciation to the many individuals who contributed to the development of the California Evaluation Protocols. Without the support and assistance of these individuals this effort would not have been possible.
The Joint Staff (California Public Utilities Commission and the California Energy Commission) provided considerable Protocol development guidance and conducted multiple rounds of reviews of all sections of the Protocols. These individuals and their affiliations are the following:
Appreciation is also extended to the Administrative Law Judge, Meg Gottstein, who ordered the development of the Protocols and who provided instructive guidance and policy direction along the way.
In addition to the oversight and guidance provided by the above individuals, others within the Energy Division of the California Public Utilities Commission and the California Energy Commission provided valuable contributions and support. For these efforts we thank the following individuals:
Nancy Jenkins, California Energy Commission
Tim Drew, Energy Division, California Public Utilities Commission
Zenaida Tapawan-Conway, Energy Division, California Public Utilities Commission
Peter Lai, Energy Division, California Public Utilities Commission
Nora Gatchalian, Energy Division, California Public Utilities Commission
Jeorge Tagnipes, Energy Division, California Public Utilities Commission

We also wish to thank the California investor owned utilities and their program management and evaluation staff who have attended workshops and provided both written and verbal comments during the Protocol development process. And we wish to thank the public representatives who attended the workshops and provided verbal and written comments. All of these combined efforts helped move the development of the Protocols to a successful completion in a very short period of time.
Lastly, we wish to thank the TecMarket Works Protocol Project Team who under direction from the ALJ and the Joint Staff, and with useful comments from the IOUs and the public, took the Protocols from concept to completion under the oversight of Joint Staff.
This team was made up of the following individuals:
Nick Hall, Johna Roth, Carmen Best, TecMarket Works
