  • NARUC webinar Virtual Power Plants in the 20s: Moving From Theory to Practice, August 12, 2021, 3:00-4:00 pm ET (recording).
  • Grid Integration and Electrification in Energy Codes, August 12, 2021, 1:00-2:00 pm ET, DOE Building Energy Codes Program webinar on the role of building energy codes in advancing connected buildings, how electrification will necessitate this, and GEB technologies being adopted at state and local levels. (slides; recording).
  • Considerations and Approaches for Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings (GEB) Pilots, August 10, 2021, 4:00-5:00pm ET -- With DOE support, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is providing technical assistance (TA) to Washington State and Hawaii on considerations for GEB pilots. This webinar summarizes key points and approaches from technical briefs being developed for both states, including the states' motivation and interest in GEB pilots and how they plan to use the TA. (Introductory slides, main presentation, recording.)
