GridOptimal© Initiative helps address grid integration of the built environment


NBI, in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), led a national coalition committed to better integrating buildings into utility grid management strategies. This project developed new metrics by which building features and operating characteristics that support more effective grid operation can be measured and quantified. GridOptimal continues in an implementation phase to advance the use of grid connectivity and integrating distributed energy resources to help decrease carbon emissions from energy production.
