Plug And Play: Managing Plug Loads
Thursday, May 12, 2016
Traditionally, building energy efficiency programs have focused on regulated loads – the energy associated with heating, cooling, and lighting – while largely ignoring the energy consumed by appliances and equipment, so called “plug loads”. Largely invisible to policy makers, plug loads have been allowed to increase without check, and as base building systems become more efficient, unregulated loads are an ever increasing percentage of building energy use.
Speakers will describe the technological and social challenges of plug load management, and present case studies of successful programs. The importance of occupant engagement through Con Edison’s Connected Devices program and how its impact fits within the larger context of utility systems and building energy regulations will be featured. Also, the speakers will examine how an ‘internet of things’ approach can facilitate energy management to increase efficiency and data collection.
