Although the payments to building owners for participating in demand response programs are not always sufficient to entice building owners to participate, there may be unanticipated benefits...
At the B2G Summit held in January 2010, a representative of a controls company talked about a demand response project at a large building in New York. As a consequence of doing this project, the building owner realized substantial, unexpected energy savings, because the process of preparing the building systems for demand response revealed opportunities for operating the building systems more efficiently.
We believe that communication standards will help more building owners benefit from the evolving Smart Grid. To that end, we participate in activities of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel and the BACnet committee (ASHRAE SSPC 135).
