According to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, demand response (DR) is defined as: “Changes in electric usage by end-use customers from their normal consumption patterns in response to changes in the price of electricity over time, or to incentive payments designed to induce lower electricity use at times of high wholesale market prices or when system reliability is jeopardized.”

The Future of Energy

The Future of Energy

The energy industry is in the midst of a dramatic transformation as it reevaluates and reconfigures the way that it generates, stores, and distributes electricity. Energy demand worldwide increases by 2% each year as our global culture becomes more energy-dependent. Meanwhile, mounting concern over CO2 emissions, fossil fuel usage, and

Solar and Energy Storage Financing for Schools

Solar and Energy Storage Financing for Schools

Jason Coughlin, a solar analyst at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, was coauthor of a 2011 report, “Solar Schools Assessment and Implementation Project: Financing Options for Solar Installations on K–12 Schools.”

“Schools have continued to install solar using power purchase agreements (PPAs) and the trend is to continue seeing third-party installations,” says Coughlin.

Responding to Water Demand

The term “demand management” is more commonly associated with the electricity industry than the world of water, but Matt Dickens, resource conservation manager for Valencia Water Company (VWC) in California, understands the correlation and recognizes that many of the principles of demand response can be applied to water management as well.

Energy Management Systems

To exemplify the evolving nature of energy management systems, Greg Turner, vice president for Honeywell Business Solutions, recalls a recent conversation in which a hospital facilities manager spoke of how he’d have to come up with budget figures once a year that would either be accepted or rejected.

“Now I get calls almost
