The Gridoptimal Buildings InitiativeGrid Modernization - BuildingsLinkNew Buildings Institute U.S. Green Building CouncilThe GridOptimal™ Buildings Initiative. Metrics by which building features and operating characteristics that support more effective grid operation can be measured and quantified. This supports the least-cost decarbonization of the grid through better integration of both distributed energy resources (DER) and utility-scale wind and solar energy.
