On April 15, 2014, Enerliance accepted the Peak Load Management Association (PLMA) Outstanding Demand Response Customer Award on behalf of Kilroy Realty Corporation and its vice president of sustainability, Sara Neff. Unable to attend the event, Kilroy Realty gave Enerliance the honor of acceptance after a year of demand response collaboration that resulted in 1.6 MW of automated demand response (Auto-DR) capacity generated over six buildings and one million square feet.
Kilroy’s 2013 gains in demand response were made possible in part by Enerliance’s LOBOS 10-Stage Auto-DR Controllers, which allow for participation in demand response programs without impacting tenant comfort. The centerpiece of the 2013 project was the Kilroy Airport Center, a 50-acre business park in Long Beach, California that is serviced by Southern California Edison (SCE).
The Enerliance and Kilroy collaboration was such a success that there are a number of projects on the board for 2014, including the completion and deployment of an additional 2.9 MW of Auto-DR in SCE and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) territories over the span of 16 buildings totaling 1.8 million square feet. The 2014 SDG&E sites include one of the first CA IOU deployments of OpenADR2.0(a), which SDG&E tested successfully on February 28, 2014. Kilroy has also begun the process of implementing Auto-DR into their Pacific Gas & Electric. (PG&E) portfolio under the PG&E advanced HVAC/R Auto-DR program. These projects will begin in 2014, with full capacity slated to be on-line in 2015.
