DOE Provides $65 Million for ‘Connected Communities’

America’s 125 million homes and commercial buildings currently use almost 40% of U.S. energy, 74% of its electricity, and account for the great majority of peak electricity demand. Connected communities can leverage the latest advancements in building science, like state-of-the-art sensors, controls, and analytics, to more flexibly manage and deploy grid-scale energy efficiency and distributed energy resources. With funding up to $65 million, DOE aims to expand its existing set of connected communities nationwide to demonstrate how groups of buildings, and the distributed energy resources (DERs) to which they connect, can reliably and affordably cooperate to collectively manage and optimize their energy performance—all while maintaining or even improving occupant comfort.  https://www.energy.gov/eere/articles/can-connected-communities-solve-grid-challenges-scale-let-s-find-out
