Gund Tea - Paul Hines: Flexibility is the New Efficiency: Solving the Challenges of Variable Renewable Energy by Demand-Side Flexibility
Vermont is global leader in energy (particularly electricity) efficiency. However, efficiency programs that are merely designed to reduce total electricity usage need to be updated to adjust for the exponential growth of variable wind and solar power, which are creating many hours in which electricity is better than free. This talk will discuss the need and technology for enabling flexibility from demand-side resources in order to make energy services as a whole more efficient.
