Optimal Building Technology Selection and Operation: A Systemic Approach

July 14, 2009 (All day)

This presentation describes a systemic approach for a) optimal building energy service provision, and b) building energy demand forecasting to 2050. First the global concept will be shown and then two different models are described in detail. The Distributed Energy Resources Costumer Adoption Model (DER-CAM), which has been developed for more than 7 years, and the Stochastic Energy Deployment System (SEDS). DER-CAM is a mixed integer linear program written and executed in the General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS®). It minimizes the annual energy costs, carbon emissions, or multiple objectives of providing services to a building-scale microgrid. It has been licensed by several national and international research institutes and commercialization efforts are under way. Results from case studies performed for the USDOE and CEC will be shown. SEDS is an uncertainty-based national multi-institutional research effort for energy forecasting to 2050. SEDS is intended to model the whole U.S. energy demand in different sectors, but LBNL is responsible for the building sector only, the Stochastic Lite Building Module (SLBM). SLBM estimates the impact of different policies and consumer behavior on the market penetration of low carbon building technologies. SEDS is currently under review by the USDOE and preliminary results will be shown.
