Save Money and Build Resilience with Distributed Energy Technologies

Building owners, municipal planners, and governments face a range of priorities when it comes to powering their buildings – minimizing cost, ensuring resilience, and in many cases, meeting renewable energy goals. This webinar introduced two tools used for assessing potential facility-level energy technology investments: the Distributed Energy Resources Customer Adoption Model (DER-CAM) and REopt Lite. DOE's National Laboratories developed and used these tools to analyze potential energy investments at existing Better Buildings Challenge partner facilities; learn the results of the completed analysis and how these publicly available tools were able to help energy managers and other decision-makers optimize the unique energy needs of their facilities.

Speakers: John Agan, U.S. Department of Energy; Emma Elgqvist, National Renewable Energy Laboratory; Nicholas DeForest, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab
