Description: The full Request for Information can be found on the EERE Exchange website: This request for information is intended to inform the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy by providing input and feedback on the concept of an “energyshed” as well as the benefits of and barriers to energyshed management systems. EERE is seeking input on: -the concept and operational bounds of an energyshed, -the value and uses of tracking the location of energy serving a particular load area for different stakeholders, and specific capabilities and information that would be most useful for that end, -the development of tools and analyses to define and establish an energyshed and operate an energyshed management system, -understanding the impact of more locally derived renewable electricity generation, -how energyshed managements systems may affect grid operation on a day-to-day basis as well as long term, -what business models are most appropriate to obtain more locally derived electricity generation, and -how locally generated electricity will impact the development of a more resilient power system, including microgrids. This information will inform DOE’s consideration of a potential funding opportunity to develop and deploy an energyshed management system. EERE is interested in responses from all stakeholders, including representatives of state and cities, academia, national laboratories, non-governmental organizations, interest groups, private sector, and more.
