Blog Images-microgridThe emergence of microgrids as a strategy for increasing facility- and grid-level resilience and smoothly integrating renewable energy presents a significant demand response opportunity for both power providers and DR program participants.

That was the message of a recent OpenADR Alliance webinar, “How Demand Response Can Benefit from the Growth in Microgrids,” featuring Patty Solberg, Powerit’s vice president of products and marketing, and Russell Carr, a senior engineer in Arup’s microgrid and energy storage consulting practice in San Francisco.

We found this article from EnerNOC, What Your Industrial Energy Management Strategy is Missing, to be spot on and insightful. Industrial energy management is an often underutilized area for grid stability and energy reduction. EnerNOC presents some very specific ideas as to how industrial customers can best engage in a proactive energy strategy.

Blog Images-EcoSystemDemand management is coming into its own, with more and more utilities and technology providers recognizing it as an essential part of the smart grid ecosystem.

That was our take after attending Greentech Media’s annual Grid Edge Live conference, June 23–25 in San Diego. Companies are starting to think about demand management as part of their overall energy strategy, much more so than in past years. A whole wave of companies—new and established players—is incorporating facility load control with storage, with aggregation, or with both.

Blog Images-CampusCommercial buildings and campuses, long focused on energy efficiency, are now waking up to the fact that they can save on energy costs through demand management. By using a demand management system to control electrical loads based on utility meter readings, facilities can save up to 15 percent on their electricity bills.

A DMS, installed as an energy supervisory layer on top of a building management system (or several siloed control systems), allows commercial and campus facilities to fine-tune when they draw electricity from the grid in order to smooth out demand peaks and reduce their use of costly peak power. A DMS also enables reliable participation in automated demand response programs, which pay facilities for reducing their power use to relieve grid stress, and provides insight into equipment efficiency and performance. And because the facility manager sets temperature and other control parameters in the DMS, all these benefits are possible without compromising occupant comfort or safety.

California electricity pricing is becoming more complex as the state shifts time-of-use schedules to help deal with its “duck curve,” an expanding belly of midday over generation from solar resources followed by a drop in generation as demand climbs in the evening.

John Goodin, regulatory policy manager for California ISO, told participants in last month’s National Town Meeting on Demand Response and Smart Grid that CAISO is redefining seasons as winter, spring, inner summer, and outer summer to account for distributed generation. CAISO has also identified two super–off-peak periods (March and May, when solar generation is high but consumption is not) and a super-peak period (July and August).
