USGBC, EDF Want Commercial Buildings Enrolled in Demand Response

USGBC Energy ManageA demand response partnership between the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and the US Green Building Council (USGBC) reports that 133 LEED-certified buildings, representing 51 million square feet, have either enrolled in the partnership’s program, are evaluating enrollment, or have been determined to be demand response ready.

The Demand Response Partnership Program (DRPP), which launched two years ago, is aimed at increasing the participation from commercial buildings in utility demand response programs. The partnership has now begun its data analysis and reporting phase with a research pool of 30 buildings agreeing to provide energy usage data and nearly 200 buildings participating in the Building Systems Assessment Survey. The results of this analysis will be released in a report in summer 2014.

The partnership used the USGBC’s LEED Pilot Credit 8: Demand Response as an incentive and implementation guideline and leveraged its relationships with the building community to foster adoption and participation in existing utility demand response offerings.
