The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to strengthen cooperation on research, development, and deployment of technologies that increase energy efficiency.
The MOU establishes a framework with the goal of satisfying the nation’s growing electricity needs. Keys to reaching this goal include improving energy efficiency and promoting the adoption of electricity demand-response programs to curtail energy use during peak periods.
Activities supported under the MOU include: conducting research on demand response and energy efficiency in buildings; developing guidelines and methods to calculate emissions and emission reductions; creating digital devices to link the electrical grid and building-control systems; and analyzing utilities’ catalogues of energy-efficient technologies.
