    Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings as a Utility Resource

    Electrification of the built environment will place unprecedented requirements on the nation’s electric utility system. That same system is simultaneously working to reduce, then eliminate, fossil fuels from its supply mix. The built environment offers a critical success path for utilities by incorporating demand flexibility strategies such as grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs). This panel brings together leading voices from utilities and national laboratories on how the new utility-customer relationship is evolving and how the built environment holds the key to utility system reliability and adequacy in the age of decarbonization.

    10:30 am - 12:00 pm

    Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings

    Continued progress toward the electrification of the built environment creates both a massive challenge and an opportunity for eliminating carbon emissions. The challenge of new loads from electrification on the utility system requires enhanced abilities for shifting, shedding, and modulating those loads to the mutual benefit of the building owner and serving utility. The effort to scale grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs) is well underway. What are the risks to all parties in getting this wrong? This session will bring together voices from the nation’s leading national laboratory on GEBs with building owners and service providers who are deploying GEBs strategies in commercial and institutional buildings across the country.
