(equipment)
• Second, implement a demand response program
(behavioral)
• Third, install Renewable Energy
• The benefits of doing EE First
• The facility uses less energy and the system can be smaller
• More power can be sold into the market
• This will simplify the facility’s microgrid and allow
interconnection of the microgrid to an energy management
system for total, real-time, control
