ColorPower: A Structured Approach to Demand Response

August 31, 2012 - 12:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

ColorPower is a distributed, biologically-inspired, self-organizing aggregation software approach to demand response.  It requires no HANs, no direct price signals, no load control programs to work, but instead follows a principle of automated volunteerism that minimizes individual inconvenience.  It provides fast, reliable, and precise load shaping across large populations.  We will present the science research, architecture, and economic theory behind ColorPower, and invite a research collaboration with LBNL to harmonize with OpenADR. Slides available for download below. The recorded talk (slides accompanied by audio) is available at
