In an effort to further develop the guidelines for LEED Pilot Credit 8: Demand Response, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has invited Enerliance, the company behind the LOBOS automated demand response platform, to participate in the Demand Response Partnership Program (DRPP) as a technology solution provider.

Enerliance says the DRPP is a collaboration between the USGBC and the Environmental Defense Fund, with the end goal of increasing participation in demand response and smart grid programs. Other members of the DRPP are Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Southern California Edison, NV Energy and Skipping Stone.

As a research partner for LEED Pilot Credit 8: Demand Response, Enerliance notes that it will share data and experience pertaining to HVAC demand response.

"Working together, along with our research partners, we will be able to take a much needed look at the interrelationships between energy demand, energy efficiency, demand response and the commercial building sector," says the USGBC's Brendan Owens.
