This QCo Team recently completed several important EMeister MPC upgrades focused on large commercial buildings in New York City and pursuant to a grant from the Solar Energy Technology Office of the U.S. Department of Energy:
Integrate distributed photovoltaics, pursuant to the NY Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (“CLCPA”).
Target carbon emission reduction, pursuant to NYC Local LAW 97 ("LL97"); and achieve climate justice by focusing on the larger and more economical carbon reduction opportunity enabled by NYISO marginal emission rates.
Relieve the ConEd T&D system during peak periods, consistent with the ConEd Non-Wires Alternative Program ("ConEd Non-Wires").
Manage energy price/volume risk for a building, for a portfolio of buildings, for a city.
Adapt to Covid-related occupancy dynamics.
Create rapid and low cost scale, coordination, optimization, and reliability for grid-scale performance by portfolios of large commercial buildings, in these five important New York City goals.
