Since the Department of Energy and RMI released their 2019 report on the cost and benefits of Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings (GEBs), there has been a growing drumbeat of interest in the topic.
A project that ACE IoT is supporting in partnership with Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) illustrates the use cases that highlight the value of GEBs to property owners, residents, and power providers. The project also establishes a viable consumer-centric infrastructure that can enable/support residential GEBs.
TVA has released a 2-minute animated video outlining the key elements of the Open HEMS project. Please check it out.
