Title: Power Contro Energy Management and Market Systems

Abstract

More efficient use of the nation's electrical energy infrastructure will result in minimizing the cost of energy to the end user. Using real time electrical market information coupled with defined rules, market opportunities can be identified that provide economic benefit for both users and marketers of electricity. This report describes the design of one such system and the features a fully functional system would provide. This report documents several investigated methods of controlling load diversity or shifting.

  • The market research was undertaken to study the present and potential US share of the market in Italy for electric power systems and energy conservation equipment; to examine growth trends in Italy end-user industries over the next few years; to identify specific product categories that offer the most promising export potential for US companies; and to provide basic data which will assist US suppliers in determining current and potential sales and marketing opportunities. The trade promotional and marketing techniques which are likely to succeed in Italian were also reviewed.
  • The market research was undertaken to study the present and potential US share of the market in Singapore for electric power systems and energy conservation equipment; to examine growth trends in Singaporean end-user industries over the next few years; to identify specific product categories that offer the most promising export potential for US companies; and to provide basic data which will assist US suppliers in determining current and potential sales and marketing opportunities. The trade promotional and marketing techniques which are likely to succeed in Singapore were also reviewed.
  • The market research was undertaken to study the present and potential US share of the market in Thailand for electric power systems and energy conservation equipment; to examine growth trends in Thai end-user industries over the next few years; to identify specific product categories that offer the most promising export potential for US companies; and to provide basic data which will assist US suppliers in determining current and potential sales and marketing opportunities. The trade promotional and marketing techniques which are likely to succeed in Thailand were also reviewed.
  • Marketec, Inc., as part of a Honeywell research project sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE), studied the major marketing influences affecting purchasing decisions for a new product concept - an Automated Energy Management System (AEMS). The first part of this study, designated Phase One, deals with four broad assessments of market need for an AEMS within the market segment generally defined as small buildings (75,000 square feet or less). Thus, determinations were made, using carefully selected focus groups, of the following issues: (1) market perception of the market segment in particular; (2) attitudinal statements concerning the solution of thesemore » problems; (3) current and projected energy-saving practices by the respondents from the market segment; and (4) an estimate of market potential of an AEMS from an analysis of the focus groups. The second phase of this investigation deals with larger national samplings from the same market segments and uses a questionnaire technique. Three small building sectors were chosen to represent the total small-building market: (1) apartments, (2) schools, and (3) offices. In the aggregate, these three sectors represent 50% or more of the energy consumed, square footage, and number of buildings of that total market.« less
  • Load management is the systems concept of altering the real or apparent pattern of electricity use in order to: (1) improve the efficiency of the electric energy system, (2) shift fuel dependency from limited to more-abundant energy resources, (3) reduce reserve requirements for generation and transmission capacity, and (4) improve reliability of service to essential loads. Load management is particularly attractive in terms of its potential for conserving energy and capital in production and distribution of electric power; for shifting a significant amount of the fuel base from oil and natural gas to coal, nuclear, and renewable sources; and formore » stabilizing the cost of electricity. The Electric Energy Systems (EES) Division of the Department of Energy (DOE) has undertaken a comprehensive research, development, and demonstration program in load management. This program has six major elements: inventory and monitoring of non-DOE load management projects; development of load management assessment methodologies; research, development, and demonstration of use management concepts; evaluation of alternative load management technologies; commercial demonstrations, and development of advanced technologies for load management.« less
