PNNL researchers have created a control mechanism that allows households to lend flexibility to the power system. The technology is able to efficiently convert current home heating and cooling systems, as well as water heaters, into smart home appliances capable of managing their electricity consumption. The technology is predicted to help an estimated 120 million residents in the United States. It is specially designed for homes where people do not need or cannot buy smart gadgets, and it is retrofittable. ...... Read More
