Recently, our lab received a new funded project studying “Comprehensive Pliant Permissive Priority Optimization”. The project is funded by Department of Energy and it is a joint project with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The project goal is to develop a framework to prioritize behind-the-meter end-use resources, and a prototype tool that offers assessment of end-use load-utilization patterns and provides real-time dynamic prioritization of the energy-consuming loads based on end-use functional utility to satisfy occupant activity requirements. The project period is 01/2019-09/2020.
