Blog Images-openADRIn a report issued early last year, Navigant Research predicted that countries with limited demand response (DR) programs would likely skip manual DR and go directly to auto-DR with the OpenADR standard. Recent data from the OpenADR Alliance—along with our own experience of increased demand for pilot projects outside North America—show that forecast may be coming true.

Countries outside North American account for more than half of the 5,500-plus downloads of the OpenADR standard to date, according to the OpenADR Alliance data. This map shows known deployments. Entities in East Asia have completed 25.5 percent of the downloads, followed by European entities at nearly 21 percent.  Significant numbers of downloads also are coming from South and Southeast Asia (over 4 percent) and Oceania (over 2 percent). Barry Haaser, Managing Director of the OpenADR Alliance, has also been invited to speak in Brazil about OpenADR, as part of a US trade mission.

Blog Images-Solar 2A Conversation With David Meyers
Executive Vice President of Marketing & Sales
Borrego Solar

David Meyers is Executive Vice President of Marketing & Sales at Borrego Solar (http://borregosolar.com).

Established in 1980, Borrego is one of the nation’s leading designers, developers, installers, O&M providers and financiers of commercial and utility solar power systems. Borrego Solar’s photovoltaic systems are efficient, reliable and cost-effective. With more than three decades of experience and more than 1,100 solar power installations completed -- totaling over 150 megawatts -- Borrego offers a complete line of solar system design and installation services throughout North America. Borrego was the second largest commercial solar installer in the United States in Q1 2015, according to Greentech Media Research.

In the following conversation with Patty Solberg, Vice President of Products and Marketing at Powerit Solutions, Meyers talks about the changing dynamics of solar and how it can -- and should -- be harnessed in the C&I sector today.


You recently published a very interesting piece


about the combination of solar and energy storage. It was very thought provoking. What was the main message you were trying to deliver?

I was trying to explain how solar and storage actually work together in today’s market. There are just so many options right now and, as a result, there is a lot of confusion.

Blog Images-3DA new report from the Rocky Mountain Institute calls demand flexibility “a grossly underused opportunity to buffer the dynamic balance between supply and demand” that can “create quantifiable value (e.g., bill savings, deferred infrastructure upgrades) for both customers and the grid.”
We couldn’t agree more. The Economics of Demand Flexibility: How “Flexiwatts” Create Quantifiable Value for Customers and the Grid focuses on the residential sector, finding that widespread implementation of demand flexibility could save 10 to 15 percent of potential grid costs and cut customers’ electric bills 10 to 40 percent using rate structures and technologies that exist today. But it also notes that many commercial and industrial facilities are overlooking existing demand flexibility solutions that could manage demand charges, optimize electricity usage for time-varying energy prices, and improve control and visibility of large loads in commercial buildings.

Principal Research Analyst, Navigant Research / Energy Technologies Program 
Microgrids in the News Today
Microgrids and distributed energy resources are a hot topic these days—especially in North America—because of the extreme weather and power outages. It’s really the twin issues of resiliency and reliability that are being raised and brought to the forefront. 
I’d also say that the Japanese nuclear accident is playing a role here as more and more people take renewables seriously as a valuable and needed resource.
