COVID-19 Update:

To protect the health of our staff and our customers, Efficiency Vermont offices are closed to the public. We have cautiously begun scheduling project related site visits when required. You can find more information on our safety protocols here.

We know that you need support in reducing energy costs now more than ever, and we will continue to launch new offers and programs over the course of the summer. In the mean time, our customer support team is available to help you remotely. Contact us at (888) 921-5990 or info@efficiencyvermont.com.

What Are the Limits of AMI in Supporting Load Management?

To date, AMI interval data have not been applied to research projects in a way that determines the effects of energy efficiency on regional grid operations over long periods of time. This study seeks increase those effects.

The role of AMI technology in determining the effects of energy efficiency on regional grid operations has been widely assumed to be pertinent and useful. However, to date, AMI interval data have not been applied to research projects in such a way as to determine the effects across long periods of time—for example, across a year that contains the longitudinal span of summer and winter peak days and months.

This project sought to explore longitudinal AMI data to better understand the effects of energy efficiency on a regional grid. It also investigated the effects for distribution utilities, to inform future utility planning in a changing energy system and landscape.
