California Commercial End-Use Study (CEUS)
For the California Energy Commission, ADM is the prime contractor conducting an extensive survey that happens only once every ten years. The survey will be conducted in the service territories of SCE, SCG, SDG&E, PG&E, SMUD, and LADWP. Commercial businesses are being visited to interview facility managers and collect data used to develop end-use fuel saturations by area within commercial buildings. The data will be used to forecast utility requirements for maintaining a stable electricity supply to the California business community. 27,000 businesses will be surveyed throughout the state to provide a robust dataset for ongoing forecasts. A team of field surveyors supported by managers, engineers, and project coordinators will collect the data. Electric load profiles by business type will be prepared for the CEC.
