Campus, City, and Community Integration
Energy systems integration R&D on a campus, city, and community scale encompasses technologies such as campus energy aggregation, photovoltaic systems, small wind turbines, plug-in electric vehicles (individually owned and fleets), district heating and cooling, and combined heat and power systems. Policy analysis is needed to examine the effect of state and local policies on campus, city, and community integration development.
Realizing the potential energy savings from the integration of these energy system technologies requires a team approach across NREL's science and technology and analysis teams.
