     Collaborative Energy: Informed
    Communities of Building Systems

Collaborative energy relies on clear price signals
  and market interactions to engage the
  occupants of the end nodes in active
  participation in energy. Today, early forms of
  collaborative energy are in operation, the result
  of custom engineering and proprietary signals.
  In a few places, these buildings receive signals
  form OpenADR (automated demand response).
  OpenADR is a hybrid signal, halfway between
  managed and collaborative energy.
Building Automation gets Griddy while
colliding with the corporate Enterprise
Smart Grid needs the cloud
The value in Smart Grids comes
from aligning supply and demand
Old Grid

• Smart generation—predictable and reliable
• Dumb consumption—uncontrolled and
  stochastically managed
• Innovation comes from the core

• Arbitrage is most expensive service of the
 old grid
  – Price and Availability
New Grid

• Dumb Generation—any number of
  unpredictable and intermittent sources
• Smart Consumption—consumers adjust to
  dynamically changing supplies
Every end node of a smart grid is a
• Microgrids that are actively managed are
  more valuable
• Microgrids may encapsulate additional end
Someone has to manage the end
• Managed Energy
  – Direct load control and grid-based intelligence
  – Today’s utility-based model

• Collaborative Energy
  – End nodes are full participants in matching
    demand to supply
  – Higher service and better amenities
Market-oriented interfaces of the
• Price and Product Communication
  – EMIX
• Schedules and Intervals
  – WS-Calendar
• Energy Usage
• Markets and Interactions
  – Energy Interoperation
Reducing integration overhead

• Device Discovery and Profiles
  – WS-DD, WS-DP

• Building Information Models (BIM)
  – Energy models commission the design
  – Continuous commissioning to the energy model

  – From model to interface
Autonomous Load Services
Eliminate barriers,

• Smart grids are smart because they
 reward innovation
  – Scale and mission limit innovation from the
  – The end nodes can innovate because they can
    accept risk
Buildings systems monitor service
provided and energy use
• Sensors and Services
• May be in the Clouds
Microgrids are aware of the
motives of their inhabitants
• Industrial Processes
• Business Schedules
• Home Life and Values
Building-based smart grids support
consumer values
• Privacy
• Preservation of 4th
•   Autonomy
Building based systems better support performance and customer
values than top-down grid management can. This service is worth
