Load Management Dialogue
Join Us For:
Eversource Energy for Commercial & Industrial Active-Demand Management Demonstration
with Michael Goldman, Eversource Energy; and Michael Smith, National Grid
Thursday, October 17, 2019; 12:30 - 1:00 p.m. Eastern
Gain key insights from a 16th PLMA Award-winning initiative for Thought Leader. Eversource Energy introduced an innovative holistic approach to reducing peak demand among commercial and industrial (C&I) customers. Their active-demand management demonstration utilized a wide range of technologies, including battery storage, ice storage, phase change material thermal storage, advanced software and controls and wi-fi thermostats, to engage large and small C&I customers. Not only did the demonstration successfully engage with a variety of C&I customers, it also reduced the 2018 regional peak by 8.7 MW. This demonstration project shows that taking a holistic approach to demand reduction is necessary for the long-term viability of demand-reduction programs and paved the way for the development of an approach to peak-demand management featuring various technology types, each using open communication protocols that connect to a single dispatch platform.
