Advanced building designs and component technology continue to reduce loads and embrace features such as thermal mass to shift cooling and heating loads to more advantageous times of day. At the same time, utilities and campuses are increasing efforts to include renewable energy that require more advanced energy storage and demand response strategies to balance generation and consumption. This program discusses the relevant improvements that load shifting and demand response can provide, with examples of the types of utility and funding programs that are available.

After viewing attendees will be able to:

  • Identify types of programs/capabilities that would be considered demand response
  • Summarize where these programs are most likely available today and where new opportunities are forming
  • Compare various financial vehicles that are available for demand response
  • Summarize different strategies that can generate revenue and/or save energy cost
