Audrey Zibelman's presentation from America’s Sustainable Future: How U.S. Cities Are Making Energy Work, an invitational conference of public-private partnership efforts from U.S. cities pursuing innovative energy management and smart grid initiatives. The assembled leaders in industry, research and policy-making will explore the diverse energy strategies emerging in Philadelphia and across the United States.

“We’re really looking forward to both learning from the great examples set by other cities represented in the conference, and showing off the groundbreaking work happening right here in Philadelphia,” says Laurie Actman, Viridity Energy’s director of strategic partnerships and public policy.

“With smart ideas and smart policy, we should be able to build support for smart grid projects and microgrids at the federal, state and local level.”"Energy technology is changing at such a rapid pace, it's crucial to examine who's doing it right in smart grid and microgrid projects all around the country," says Eugenie Birch, Penn IUR co-director.

"With the right policy moves—which we'll be exploring at the conference—Philadelphia can be a national leader in energy innovation," noted Susan Wachter, Penn IUR co-director.

    • 1. The benefits of smart grid technology for buildings, Cities and sustainability
    • 2. Where We Are Today?
      Just like IT and telecom, our energy network is on the cusp of a paradigm shift – led by advanced technology, networked devices, and informed consumer choice.

    • 13. Leveraging a Building for Energy Savings and Revenues
      Efficiency - Reduction of KW consumption per square foot over all hours
      Demand Response – The ability to reduce consumption in response to a utility request
      Dynamic Demand Optimization – The automated and continuous active management of building load from the power grid in reaction to real time prices while ensuring that tenant comfort, sustainability and productivity concerns are addressed.

      227,965 MCF
      $5 million = direct payout to DSR instead of additional generation dispatched at higher price.
      $650 million = indirect savings per day to system during the week from DSR through lower marginal clearing prices
