In response to the Virginia General Assembly legislation enacting a statutory goal of 10 reduction in retail energy consumption over 2006 levels by 2022, Dominion Virginia Power DVP focused on the implementation of a novel Conservation Voltage Reduction CVR program that leveraged Advanced Metering Infrastructure AMI to implement an adaptive voltage control algorithm. In parallel, Dominion developed an operational statistical method to directly measure energy savings and provide circuit level performance verification. Now commercialized and improved in Dominion Voltage Inc.s EDGE solution, this technology was used to demonstrate the value of voltage conservation to military installations. Combined with dedicated building level voltage control in the form of MicroCVR is a low-cost way to reduce energy consumption that did not require changes in human behavior and was not noticeable to the end user. This demonstration showcased the value of CVR and MicroCVR to military installations.
