End-Use Load Profiles for the U.S. Building Stock: Market Needs, Use Cases, and Data Gaps

December 10, 2019

Berkeley Lab and National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) present a free webinar to discuss a new report, End-Use Load Profiles for the U.S. Building Stock: Market Needs, Use Cases, and Data Gaps.

States and utilities are developing increasingly ambitious energy goals. Part of the solution to meeting these goals is improving electric grid flexibility. This includes shifting electric demand to align with grid needs. Thus, identifying and using building energy efficiency and other distributed energy resources to produce the highest grid value requires highly resolved, accurate and accessible electricity end-use load profiles.

In this initial webinar, researchers will discuss: 

  • Goals of the project
  • Top 10 prioritized end-use load profile use cases, as identified by the project technical advisory committee
  • Geographic, temporal and electrical characteristics data needs for the prioritized use cases
  • Data gaps for the ResStock and ComStock models and approaches to fill the gaps
  • Next steps to verify the accuracy of the calibrated model outputs.
