Description 

This project performs laboratory testing of various smart appliances from different manufacturers to quantify the load curtailment potential of these appliances during DR events. Conducted in a controlled environment, these tests provide an opportunity to observe how smart appliances react to price and reliability DR event signals. Further study results can inform various DR-capable appliance efforts currently under way (such as development of the ENERGY STAR “Connected” appliance specification).
