Slipstream co-creates ASHRAE's Smart Grid Application Guide: Integrating Facilities with the Electric Grid

As the modern grid evolves, the electricity supply and demand will be more dynamic than ever. We need two-way communication between electric service providers and building energy management systems. Slipstream’s engineers created foundational education to empower building owners, designers, and building operators to build and operate for smart grid design. ASHRAE’s Smart Grid Application Guide: Integrating Facilities with the Electric Grid is the first and only of its kind developed for building designers and operators.

Readers will discover concrete steps necessary to integrate a new or renovated building with the smart grid. The guide provides revolutionary direction on a variety of topics including regulatory environments, strategies to accrue benefits, distributed energy resources, and building design considerations.

Eight authors provided their insights for this guide. Four of them were Slipstream engineers:

  • Scott Schuetter, senior engineer, Chapter four: Deploying Smart Grid Technologies—Distributed Energy Resources
  • Xiaohui “Joe” Zhou, principal engineer, Chapter eight: Building Design Considerations
  • Lee Shaver, energy engineer, Chapter nine: Microgrids
  • Scott Hackel, director of research and innovation, Chapter four: Deploying Smart Grid Technologies—Distributed Energy Resources
