The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is soliciting comment and data from the public on a variety of issues related to the physical characterization of smart and grid-connected commercial and residential buildings end-use equipment and appliances. To inform interested parties and to facilitate this data-gathering process, DOE will hold a public meeting for stakeholders to discuss issues concerning the physical characterization of grid-connected commercial and residential buildings end-use equipment and appliances, including but not limited to processes and metrics for measurement, identification of grid and building services that can be provided, and identification of values and benefits of grid connectivity. The public meeting will also allow DOE to gather input on topics related to grid-connected equipment, allow stakeholder groups to engage, and provide an opportunity to allow interested parties to provide published work and studies related to these issues. DOE also welcomes written comments from the public on any subject relevant to this proceeding (including topics not raised in this notice).
