Advanced Controls Technologies and Strategies Linking Energy Efficiency and Demand Response

October 6, 2005 - 12:00pm
Bldg. 90

Reliable supply of affordable electricity has been in the spotlight since the blackouts in California, the grid shutdown events in New England and the terrorist threats nationwide. While the array of generation technologies and transmission safety issues have been widely discussed, capacity requirements and demand side management issues have also been revisited.  This presentation will concentrate on a preliminary framework to describe how advanced controls can support multiple modes of operations including both energy efficiency and demand response (DR). A general description of DR, its benefits, and nationwide status will be outlined. The role of energy management and control systems for DR will be described. Building systems such as HVAC and lighting that utilize control technologies and strategies for energy efficiency are mapped on to DR and demand shedding strategies are also developed within this frame work. Providing multiple modes of operations for building controls along with centralized controls is the key to linking energy efficiency and demand response.
