Multi-unit residential buildings represent a critical part of utilities’ energy demand profile, comprising 28% of residential units in North America, and they are often concentrated in utilities’ most congested urban regions, where the value of demand-side flexibility is highest.
One of the biggest opportunities in the demand response space is applying innovative technologies to unlock demand-side flexibility in ways that allow utilities to make the grid greener and more reliable.
This whitepaper details an innovative Canadian partnership between SensorSuite, an AI-driven energy management solution provider, HILO which is a subsidiary of Hydro Quebec, and MURB portfolio owner CAPREIT.
It provides a blueprint for effective deployment of demand response technology in these hard-to-reach buildings and yields key lessons that can be applied to other utilities and real estate portfolios considering similar initiatives.
