SEMINAR: Grid Integration of Zero Net Energy and All-Electric Communities

SEMINAR: Grid Integration of Zero Net Energy and All-Electric Communities

Seminar Abstract 

The electricity grid is rapidly changing with renewable energy. As the grids' flexibility of this energy mix changes, energy policies are being implemented worldwide. Regions in the United States (California) and the Netherlands are moving towards a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from policies by increasing renewable energy on their grid systems. In this talk, I discuss recent work that seeks to compare residential electricity consumption in two populations in California and the Netherlands of Zero Net Energy and All-Electric households. I am investigating the building-to-grid interaction at the one-hour whole home energy consumption level using characteristic features and load shape profiles. The model I use is an extension upon the Visualization and Insight System for Demand Operations and Management (VISDOM) model.

Heidi von Korff

Heidi von Korff is a PhD Candidate at Stanford University in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering working with Professor John Weyant. Her research focuses on the building-grid interaction for Zero Net Energy and All-Electric residential households and communities. She was an integral core member of the Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon for Stanford, Start.Home, a student-led project where they built a 1,000 sq. ft. Zero Net Energy home. She holds an Engineers degree (Post-MS) from Stanford University, M.Eng. degree from Vanderbilt University, both in Civil and Environmental Engineering. Also, a graduate from Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelors in Civil Engineering.
