    Approximately 100 million singlefamily homes in the United States account for 36% of the electricity load, and often they determine the peak system load, especially on hot summer days when residential air-conditioning use is high. Traditional building power profiles are changing. Currently, there is an increased use of energy-efficient building materials and designs, which decreases building loads... View full abstract»

    Buildings consume more than 30% of the total primary energy expended worldwide and contribute to a third of the world's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In the United States, buildings consume more than 40% of the total energy and contribute almost 38% of GHG emissions. In addition, the buildings in the United States consume more than 75% of the electricity generated. The need to mitigate climate c... View full abstract»

    Proliferation of renewable energy resources at bulk power and distributed energy resources (DERs) at distribution and prosumer/grid-edge levels give rise to power system operational issues for both transmission and distribution operators. At the bulk power/transmission operation level, these changes create the need for higher levels of ancillary services and new types of grid services (flexibility... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1470 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    About 11 years ago, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) funded the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to conduct one of the first field demonstrations of what later was called a transactive system. Transactive systems have since become important tools in the DOE's research efforts to modernize the U.S. electric power grid and conserve energy in U.S. buildings. The DOE currently funds fun...

    Okay, let's be honest-there's pretty much nothing on metaheuristics in this article other than one short section, so don't let the title distract you. The focus of this issue of IEEE Electrification Magazine and of this article is on understanding and demonstrating how transactive energy systems can have an impact on nonbulk power applications. So what does that include? Well, as it turns out, a l... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

IEEE Electrification Magazine is dedicated to disseminating information on all matters related to microgrids onboard electric vehicles, ships, trains, planes, and off-grid applications. Microgrids refer to an electric network in a car, a ship, a plane or an electric train, which has a limited number of sources and multiple loads. Off-grid applications include small scale electricity supply in areas away from high voltage power networks. Feature articles focus on advanced concepts, technologies, and practices associated with all aspects of electrification in the transportation and off-grid sectors from a technical perspective in synergy with nontechnical areas such as business, environmental, and social concerns.
