Olivine is teaming with LBNL to accelerate the transition from static energy efficiency to dynamic energy management in California.
Olivine is one of Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory’s key partners on its CalFlexHub project, funded by the California Energy Commission, which draws upon the capabilities of an interdisciplinary private-public partnership to advance technologies that enable flexible, grid-integrated distributed energy resources (DERs). CalFlexHub aims to establish the technological, economic, and regulatory instruments needed to access the flexible capacity in the growing ecosystem of connected demand-side resources throughout California.
The CEC and CalFlexHub will empower residents and businesses across California to utilize smart electric devices to respond to price and GHG signals to lowering energy costs and improve sustainability. Olivine will leverage its Olivine DER™ Platform, Olivine Price Server, and the Load Management Signal Prototype (LMS-P) protocol to test the response of the delivery of digital signals that integrate directly with demonstration partners’ devices and equipment. Olivine is working with a number of clients, partners, technology vendors, and other strategic industry allies throughout the state, who will serve as demonstration site hosts for this research project.
