A New Era for Smart Buildings and Grid Solutions
It is my pleasure to share news about the newly-launched U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Connected Communities initiative. Our first cohort of nine competitively-awarded projects will advance the state of the art for grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs) and demonstrate effective ways to move forward on demand flexibility and incorporation of distributed energy resources (DERs), to provide grid services while decarbonizing our buildings and electric grid.
