The Building Technologies Office (BTO) will host a series of webinars on its Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings (GEB) technical reports that evaluate and identify which state-of-the-art building technologies could provide grid services most effectively in GEBs. Each webinar will open with a discussion of how flexible building loads can be integrated and controlled to benefit society. Authors of each report will summarize their key findings and recommendations before listeners will have a unique opportunity to discuss these findings, ask questions, and provide feedback.
Sensors, Controls & Data Analytics
Through its grid-interactive efficient building (GEB) research, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technologies Office (BTO) seeks to build on existing energy efficiency efforts and develop technological capabilities to optimize the interplay between building loads and the electric grid. This webinar will frame issues surrounding the integration of different grid services across different end-uses within a building. We will present several integration options and discuss implications for execution, estimation of demand flexibility and subsequent measurement and verification, and occupant interaction. Technology-wise, we will focus on whole-building control, sensing, and modeling and address issues like performance, complexity, and cybersecurity.
