Integrated Energy Efficiency and Demand Flexibility

Promoting and Scaling Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings (GEBs)

The study’s goal:

Investigate how utility integrated energy efficiency/demand flexibility programs can promote grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs) through identifying successful projects, key learnings, existing business model challenges and regulatory barriers, and case studies.

Through participation, collaborators will:

  • Highlight their successful projects and findings that enable integrated energy efficiency, demand flexibility, and demand response programs
  • Help the electric industry overcome existing business model challenges and regulatory barriers
  • Build a network to engage in peer-to-peer learning and discussion

The study will convene experts for focus groups and interviews to:

  • Identify energy efficiency, demand flexibility, and demand response programs/pilots that may promote GEBs
  • Discuss successful projects, key learnings, and existing business model challenges and regulatory barriers
  • Explore the future of GEBs including perspectives on the role of the utility, solution providers, and regulators, and ways the industry can promote GEBs
