eDROP (OhmConnect)

Team Members: 

Siddharth Patel (PhD, CEE), Matt Duesterberg (MS, ME), Curtis Tongue, and Prof. Ram Rajagopal (CEE)

eDROP will provide a commercialization pathway for the demand response customer-segmentation tools developed by the Rajagopal Group at Stanford. This will be effected by integration and broad deployment through the OhmConnect platform. Thousands of participants will be enrolled from across California’s three IOU utilities (PG&E, SCE, and SDGE) to create a sophisticated array of validated, dynamic customer-adoption tactics that can be broadly deployed in commercial demand response platforms. The data generated will then be used to reduce user reliance on “dirty electricity” and increase the available capacity and reliability of the grid.
