Title: CalPlug Workshop Series #7
Event Date: 5/12/2015 - 5/12/2015
Event Time: 9 a.m.
Event End: 4:30 p.m.
Location:

Calit2 Building, University of California, Irvine

Description:

The California Plug Load Research Center is hosting the seventh semiannual workshop on energy efficient plug loads.

Agenda:

8:00 am Check-in and Continental Breakfast

9:00 am CalPlug Welcome 

9:15 am SMALL NETWORK EQUIPMENT 

With more devices being connected every day, in both homes and workplaces, how can we further improve energy efficiency with Small Network Equipment to constrain the energy demand?  

This session will address the issues, challenges and possible solutions.

10:15 am AUTOMATED DEMAND RESPONSE FOR DATA CENTERS

The Calit2 Building is currently serving as a test site for ADR in a Data Center.  

What are the current findings and how do the results help in managing the dynamic demand of peak loads for utilities? How can consumers partake in improving ADR?  

This project is being conducted in collaboration with Intel, EPRI, Schneider Electric as well as Southern California Edison.

Morning Break

11:15 am SMART POWER

How can technology be used to make a whole house “smarter” as a unit on the grid? 

This session will discuss the efforts of UC Irvine and UC Davis to develop more efficient practices.

Lunch Break

1:00 pm IDLE POWER

Many electric devices use some power even when idle, and that means energy is wasted. 

New research results will be presented as well as potential future directions to reduce idle power.

2:00 pm  ENERGY USED BY COMPUTERS: THE CALIFORNIA DEBATE

In light of recent regulatory proceedings, CalPlug is taking another look at the different perspectives and presentations to offer opportunities for further discussion on this important topic such as duty cycles, enabling rates, finding further energy savings in computers, etc.

Mid-afternoon Break

3:15 pm CLOUD BASED SOLUTIONS FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY 

Power management decisions can be managed in the cloud as well as locally.  

New and future solutions from industry partners will be highlighted in this session.
