On Friday, January 11, 2019 at 3:00 PM ET, NASEO hosted a webinar to discuss the new Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings initiative. This webinar informed states about the goals of the initiative, planned approaches, next steps, and future opportunities for participation and engagement.
With support from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technologies Office, this collaborative effort between NASEO and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) will engage State Energy Officials and state utility regulators through a state Working Group to explore and discuss the status, technological trends, opportunities, and challenges of grid-interactive building integration. Through a series of state-DOE-industry calls and webinars, a planned Fall workshop, and ongoing coordination with NARUC, DOE, national labs, and the private sector, NASEO will help develop tools and resources to assist states interested in developing appropriate R&D, policy, programmatic, and regulatory activities; including briefing papers and scoping of a grid-interactive buildings roadmapping toolkit.
