Project Info COMPLETE Project Title DR10.66 - DR Smart Appliances Samsung Refrigerator Project Number DR10.66 Investor Owned Utilities SCE End-use Plug Loads and Appliances Sector Residential Project Year(s) 2013 - 2015
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).
