EPC-15-045 Transactive Incentive Signals to Manage Electricity Consumption for Demand Response
This project develops TLM signals, expressed in the form of proxy prices reflective of current and future grid conditions, and develops and implements software to calculate such signals.
EPC-15-048 Residential Intelligent Energy Management Solution: Advanced Intelligence to Enable Integration of Distributed Energy Resources
This project tests and validates an intelligent residential energy management system that is capable of communicating with a variety of DERs including solar PV and energy storage in 100 residences in San Diego.
EPC-15-051 The Value Proposition for Cost-Effective, Dr-Enabling, Nonresidential Lighting System Retrofits in California Buildings
The purpose of this research project will be to evaluate the costs and benefits of DR control system requirements in the California Energy Code across the existing non-residential building stock in California.
EPC-15-054 Complete and Low-Cost Retail Automated Transactive Energy System (RATES)
This project will develop and pilot-test a standards-based Retail Automated Transactive Energy System (RATES), and behind the meter energy management solution.
EPC-15-057: Customer-controlled, Price-mediated, Automated Demand Response for Commercial Buildings
The purpose of this project is to improve small and large commercial customer participation in demand response programs by providing a cost-effective energy management system that allows a wide range of service offerings as well as effective and automated price-based management.
EPC-15-073: Identifying Effective Demand Response Program Designs to Increase Residential Customer Participation
This project tested the effectiveness of innovative designs for demand response programs for residential customers using a behind-the-meter customer engagement platform developed by OhmConnect.
EPC-15-074: Meeting Customer and Supply-side Market Needs with Electrical and Thermal Storage, Solar, Energy Efficiency and Integrated Load Management Systems
This project develops co-optimization strategies for DERs. The purpose is to maximize customer and system value.
EPC-15-075: Customer-centric Demand Management using Load Aggregation and Data Analytics
This project will demonstrate how a large number of small loads, each impacted by and tuned to individual customer preferences can provide load management for both utilities and the CAISO.
EPC-15-083: Empowering Proactive Consumers to Participate in Demand Response Programs
The project will develop, test, and refine information communication and automation techniques that maximize customer engagement in DR events and low-cost telemetry solutions that facilitate participation in CAISO r markets.
EPC-15-084: Total Charge Management: Advanced Charge Management for Renewable Integration
This project explores the benefits and opportunities of Total Charge Management, where electric vehicle charging is managed across multiple charging events to maximize vehicle load flexibility.
Machine to Machine (M2M) Technology in Demand Responsive Commercial Buildings
The objective of the study was to evaluate the technological performance of Automated Demand Response hardware and software systems in large facilities. The concept in the evaluation was to conduct a test using a fictitious electricity price to trigger a demand-response event over the Internet.
Exploring the Relationship Between DR and EE: A Review of Experience and Discussion of Key Issues
This project examined experience with demand-response programs in the United States to capture a comprehensive picture of the state of this practice to date. A key objective of this project was to examine the relationship between energy efficiency and demand response
Review of Current SCE Load Management Programs and Proposal for a New Market-Driven, Mass-Market, DR Program
This report provides an independent review of the designs of these new programs for SCE and suggests possible improvements to enhance the “price responsiveness” of the customer actions influenced by these programs.
DR Advanced Controls Framework and Assessment of Enabling Technology Costs
This report supplements the Demand Response Advanced Controls Database and User Manual, and is intended to provide a comprehensive discussion of each enabling technology and their capacity to provide various services to the bulk power system.
The California DR Potential Study, Phase 3: The Shift Resource through 2030
This study describes new findings on the scale of the opportunity for enabling load shifting as a form of DR in California, as part of this renewable energy transition.
Integrated Energy Efficiency and Demand Response Programs
The goal of this research was to characterize the landscape of integrated EE/DR programs in the United States. We sought insight into how many integrated programs exist, how they are designed, and what types of customers they serve.
Integrating Demand Response and Distributed Resources in Planning for Large-scale Renewable Energy Integration
This paper describes the emerging challenges for grid management and the technology drivers for DER as background and context.
