On July 23 and 24, 2014, BTO held technical meetings graciously hosted by Case Western Reserve University on a Software Framework for Transactive Energy. The purpose of this meeting was to give an overview of the VOLTTRON™ platform—a transaction based software platform and an open source software environment—as well as the Transactional Network concept and build and expand the community around this technology. Meeting agenda items included exploring current and future applications that use the VOLTTRON platform, outlining use cases of the technology, and showcasing several building/grid applications to improve, such as buildings' energy efficiency and electric vehicle charging.
Included below are materials from this meeting: the meeting book distributed to participants; and all the presentations given at the meeting, in the sequence in which they were given. Also included below is a DOE/BTO presentation that provides a summary wrap-up, including key takeaways, of the two-day meeting.
