Smart Buildings as a Transactive Energy Hub
In most electric power systems, building energy loads take up the majority of the total energy consumption, sometimes consuming as much as 70%. Due to this, a hot topic in the power and energy field is finding flexible and scalable ways of engaging building loads. To this end, smart buildings have become an increasingly important topic to researchers, as with the proper interfaces they can actually be made to flexibly respond to the needs of the overall grid.
To help our members keep up with the latest and best thinking in asset management, IEEE Power & Energy Society has created a number of resources on this subject. This email is intended to highlight a few of those resources, as well as upcoming events and content focused on this subject:
PES Resources and Content
The Plug-and-Play Electricity Era: Interoperability to Integrate Anything, Anywhere, Anytime
This article from IEEE P&E Magazine explains and expands upon the concept of Energy Services Interface by discussing the benefits interoperability for DERs could have on the Grid.
A Transactive Operating Model for SmartAirport Parking Lots
This paper examines long-term airport parking the transactive benefits that smart parking can have for both individuals and for the grid as a whole.
Secure Communication Architecture for Dynamic Energy Management in Smart Grid
This paper presents a communication framework that effectively copes with the interoperability and integration challenges between devices from different manufacturers.
