One of the major advancements in recent years that will have a key impact towards the future of sustainability is the Smart Grid. The Smart Grid, which is considered the future of the electrical grid, possesses all the foundations of improving your building’s reliability, energy efficiency, sustainability, and can curtail your energy usage and optimize energy costs using the support of demand response.
At SRM, our lead consultant David Katz, is a Smart Grid expert and highly knowledgeable in preparing your building to fully leverage and optimize the benefits of the Smart Grid. David developed the Building Intelligence Quotient (BiQ), which is responsible for determining the status and intelligence of buildings against current industry norms and identifies opportunities for improvement. Moreover, this tool helps assess whether a building is capable and prepared for the transition towards the Smart Grid, and will recommend proper guidance should there be any inadequacies. On a Smart Grid development level, David has been a NIST B2Grid Expert for three years and is now working on Smart Grid interface issues. He also has 10 years of peak reduction/demand response expertise and developed the Demand Response Shop website and is now working on Automated DR.
