The E3 team will demonstrate the performance and benefits of PV integrated energy storage and demand response. Using a 34 unit zero net energy (ZNE) development in Sacramento, the E3 team will implement control strategies to both reduce customer bills and provide distribution system benefits for PV integration. These strategies including time-of-use pricing and peak load reduction, firming PV generation, demand response, shaping net loads, scheduling and dispatch of spinning reserves and voltage support. The project will demonstrate the benefits of PV integrated with storage and demand response to both the customer and the utility and will result in program recommendations for utilities and policy makers.
