New Metrics for Evaluating Building-Grid Integration

Paper / May 18, 2020 / Building Innovation

Since mid-2018, the not-for-profit, multi-stakeholder GridOptimal Buildings Initiative (GridOptimal 2020) has been developing metrics to measure the grid impacts of building features and operating characteristics to support a new design approach that prioritizes better building-grid integration across the building stock. Standardized metrics that quantitatively define a building’s operational performance as a grid asset will catalyze market development for grid-interactive buildings.
