Renewable Integration with Small Loads

< Previous Page

Through a Consortium for Electricity Reliability Technology Solutions (CERTS) funded partnership between UC Berkeley, LBNL, and the private sector, DRRC is evaluating measurement and verification, speed and reliability of response over time, and the consumer and grid value of low-cost aggregations of small loads. Novel measurement, verification, and control schemes are used with thermostatically controlled loads to demonstrate and measure their efficacy in providing ancillary services that facilitate the integration of renewable energy sources.
