Vineyard Power

Vineyard Energy Project

Abstract

The Vineyard Energy Project (VEP) deployed home area networks, direct load control devices, and new smart appliances, as well as integrating these assets into the Vineyard Power Management System (VPMS) and a load balancing system. The project gave 40 participants access to a web portal, allowing them to view their energy usage information online. In addition, the project deployed a custom load control system at a supermarket display case cooler. All these appliances were turned on/off in a demand response demonstration responding to utility price signals.
