Distributed Intelligent Automated Demand Response

Distributed Intelligent Automated Demand Response (DIADR) is a proposed system to achieve aggregated control of building resources in order to lower power grid stress during times of peak electrical load. Beyond this initial goal, DIADR is a start down the path toward new techniques of “load sculpting” – intelligent control of building loads such that at each individual point in time the absolute minimum electricity demand is required in order to maintain productivity. This project aims to demonstrate a feasible implementation of new wirelessly enabled DR technologies into the commercial sector that simultaneously reduce energy consumption during peak load times and mitigate the environmental impacts of electricity production.
