Successful Test of Fast-DR, Northern California Takes another Step towards Smart Grid

Software and hardware technology developed by the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) helped Northern California power utility Pacific Gas and Electric Company and several of its commercial and industrial customers demonstrate that they can reduce power usage automatically and quickly—in less than 10 minutes—in support of grid reliability. This approach is sometimes called Fast-DR (fast demand response).
