1. An EETD Seminar on July 9, 2013, with speaker: Prof. Paul Waddell, Chair of the City and Regional Planning Department at UC Berkeley.
    This talk describes the UrbanSim land use model system developed by Paul Waddell with numerous collaborators, and its application to the San Fransisco Bay Area in support of the regional Sustainable Communities Strategies planning process. UrbanSim is a micro-simulation model system that represents the location choices of households and firms within the region, and the choices of real estate developers to construct or redevelop buildings on parcels throughout the region.

  2. An EETD Seminar presentation on June 14, 2013, by Dr. Jonathan Koomey, Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy & Finance, Stanford University

    In 2010, more than fifty of Art Rosenfeld's friends and colleagues teamed up to propose a new unit of energy efficiency: the Rosenfeld. Its purpose was to allow quick, intuitive, and physically meaningful comparisons between energy efficiency savings and power plants avoided. The Rosenfeld is a unit of of electrical power, equivalent to that delivered to end-users by a 500 MW coal plant operating at a capacity factor of 70%, or 3 billion kWh per year. Assuming the carbon intensity of an average coal plant, that avoided generation equates to 3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. This talk will describe how this useful heuristic came about, and summarize the benefits and potential pitfalls of using it to characterize energy savings estimates.

  3. A Tech Close-Up news story about automated climate control in commercial locations in response to real-time signals from electric utilities. The goal is to reduce power demand at times of system overload.

    Participants in the development of this technology include Pacific Gas and Electric, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, numerous energy consultants, and commercial electricity consumers such as Ikea (featured here).

  5. The Demand Response Research Center (DRRC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory worked with California and the nation to develop an open standards communication specification for the automation of electricity demand response.

    This specification, known as Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR), provides a non-proprietary interface that lets electricity providers send signals about electricity price and system grid reliability directly to customers over networks such as the Internet. The signals can be manual or automated. OpenADR supports interoperability among control equipment and energy markets, and cuts costs for providers and consumers.

    The OpenADR specification is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Institute of Standards and Technology Smart Grid Interoperability Standards effort.
