DOE Smart Buildings
May 4, 2020 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm PDT
U.S Department of Energy (DOE) announced its intention to issue a new, dedicated competitive Funding Opportunity on Connected Communities that would invest up to $42 million in pilots around the country. This is designed to demonstrate and evaluate the capacity of grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs) to perform at a community scale, in multiple pilots around the U.S., to provide greater degrees of demand flexibility at far greater scales and in more varied settings than we’ve ever tested before. The intent is to expand DOE’s initial set of smart community testbeds into a cohort of 6 or soregional pilot projects to study a variety of building types, technologies, utility/grid/regulatory environments in various climates and locations.
