A team of researchers from the University of Michigan, Los Alamos National Laboratory, UC Berkeley, and Pecan Street Inc. are developing a new way to use algorithmic-based controllers to interpret, aggregate, and respond to air conditioning load across large number of homes. This enables slight adjustments to the timing of cooling in individual homes that are unlikely to inconvenience families but promise an efficient and cost-effective way to accommodate fluctuations in power generation from solar and wind. In this webinar, an expert panel will discuss the unique aspects this APRA-E-funded breakthrough research, including algorithm development and how the new hardware and software allows controllers to be demonstrated in the field, as well as explore the commercialization potential of the resulting solution.
