Objective Implement an open standard web services-based system to allow machine to machine communication between DOD facilities and energy providers that enables secure participation in the demand response and ancillary services markets using end point hardware certified for DoD networks. Technology Description Our solution consists of two parts a cloud-based server EISS to distribute market signals from an ISO or utility according to a standard format and client-side end points EISSBox to convey standard market signals to facility energy management systems. The end points allow existing energy management systems to interface with these open standard web services rather than requiring expensive building upgrades. Expected Benefits DOD facilities can participate in demand response programs requiring automated signals. Much of the DOD focus in recent years has been in energy efficiency. This proposal focuses directly on reducing present energy costs. While net-zero investment and solar projects can take decades to recoup savings, participation in demand response programs, especially those requiring rapid response, can yield a payback with dramatic savings in all future years as the project is expanded. Additional savings can be driven by installation of
