Building Energy Codes and Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings

Grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs) combine efficiency and demand flexibility with smart technologies and communication to provide occupant comfort and productivity while serving the grid as a distributed energy resource (DER). This report, prepared by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy, includes an overview of relevant BTO research efforts to inform and guide the addition of GEB considerations in the model energy code.
