During this seminar we will explain how much greater benefits result with the full integration and optimization of DSM resources. A four step methodology and the related software are explained, as follows:
The size and scale of DSM benefits results from consumer engagement and managed customer load, in coordination with distribution level balancing. The benefits result from reduced utility costs (energy, capacity, T&D), proper sizing, improve customer satisfaction (with control over comfort and convenience relative to the size and volatility of monthly bills), and distributed optimization. Implementation steps use a platform for distributed analytics, common messaging for data translation at the edge, contextualization at the edge with a common information model, and use of "big data" to define optimal algorithms, design, and location.
