Presentations and speakers:
• "SDG&E Battery Market Study: Residential and Non-Residential Customers" by Bryan Jungers, Senior Research Manager, Technology Assessment, E Source
SDG&E recently wrapped up work on a multiyear behind-the-meter (BTM) battery field study, conducted at two school districts in SDG&E territory. SDG&E conducted the analysis to better understand: the broader implications of the field evaluation’s findings, some anomalous, unexplained findings from the field study, how this growing market is likely to evolve over time, and the demand response (DR) and demand-charge management (DCM) potential of distributed battery storage.
• "CEC EPIC's Santa Ana Project" by Cathy Higgins, Research Director, New Buildings Institute; Jerine Ahmed, Senior Engineer, Technology Area Lead, Whole Buildings & HVAC, Southern California Edison
Learn about an emerging automated shading technology that integrates with advanced lighting controls. SCE will introduce its ET and program support. NBI will present on the new shading technology that offers a gateway to retrofit existing buildings for lighting and thermal energy savings as well as provides occupants and operators refined control for glare and comfort. The lab and field demonstration research findings (to date) showing compelling energy reductions will also be shared.
• "Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings (GEBs)" by David Nemtzow, Director, Building Technologies Office, U.S. Department of Energy
The DOE has announced its intention to issue a new, dedicated competitive Funding Opportunity on Connected Communities that would invest up to $42 million in pilots around the country. This is designed to demonstrate and evaluate the capacity of GEBs to perform at a community scale, in multiple pilots around the U.S., to provide greater degrees of demand flexibility at far greater scales and in more varied settings than we’ve ever tested before.
