SCE conducted a technical evaluation and field test of an innovative solution that could have the potential for facilitating DR responsiveness without sacrificing guest comfort. 

It appears that a hotel employing a centralized guestroom controls in the form of a Property Management System (PMS) integrated with the Energy Management System (EMS) could be effective with proper outreach and education, able to drive a shift in the hospitality market to DR for grid reliability. The combined impact of the technology being allowed to function as designed and the educational outreach program may provide the energy and demand savings required to make the investment in the centralized guestroom controls more compelling.
