Integrating Smart Building Control Systems to Enable Grid-Interactive Buildings (GIB)

What does it take for a building to become grid-interactive? 

Buildings are a major contributor to global energy-related CO2 emissions.

Efforts to achieve net zero emissions for buildings involve, in part, reducing overall carbon-based energy consumption and developing on-site micro-grids. Maximizing the sustainable and financial impacts of these efforts re-quires a coordination and interaction between the larger energy grids and buildings.

This whitepaper by Schneider Electric explains what it takes to make a “grid-interactive building” or GIB and presents an example architecture.
