Residential Grid-Interactive Efficient Building Technology and Policy: Harnessing the Power of Homes for a Clean, Affordable, Resilient Grid of the Future

The AnnDyl Policy Group prepared this report for the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO), in cooperation with the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC), and with support from the U.S. Department of Energy.

This report aims to provide insight into the challenges and opportunities associated with advancing grid-interactive efficient residential buildings and the policies and research needed to enable homes to play an important role in managing U.S. energy demand and support a resilient, sustainable, and dynamic grid of the future. This report is presented in seven sections:
  • Introduction
  • Residential GEB Technologies: Current and Future Potential
  • Program/Pilot Highlights
  • Barriers and Opportunities
  • Recommendations for Policymakers
  • Research and Development Needs
  • Conclusion
The authors thank NASEO, the U.S. Department of Energy, NARUC, and the many practitioners, researchers, policymakers, stakeholders, and innovators who gave their time for discussions and formal interviews with the authors.
