Smart Grid Seminar: Dr. Haiwang Zhong, Tsinghua University: Recent Development of Demand Response and its Implementation in China

February 14, 2019 - 1:30pm
Shriram 104

Abstract: Demand response (DR) offers one of the most promising opportunities for engineering sustainable electricity services in the future. In this talk, the speaker will introduce recent development of demand response, including coupon-incentive based demand response (CIDR), integrated dispatch of generation and load (IDGL), and integrated demand response (IDR) in multi-energy systems. In addition, the speaker will introduce several ongoing pilot projects on demand response in China, including the smart grid pilot project in Ningxia Autonomous Region and the Energy Internet (EI) pilot project in Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province.
