Buildings-to-Grid Technical Opportunities: From the Grid Perspective

To successfully operate and deliver its promise of a seamlessly integrated buildings-grid infrastructure, a transactive energy ecosystem requires new approaches to planning and operating the power grid. These approaches include technological advances in the area of standards, measurements, control strategy, and theories so that the essential transactive market between buildings and the grid will fully function and deliver benefits to all participants while maintaining grid stability.

This report outlines the nature of the power grid, lists challenges and barriers to the implementation of a transactive energy ecosystem, and provides concept solutions to current technological impediments.
