The “Agents for Renewables” Project was successfully completed in June 2011. This project is the latest of three successful California Energy Commission funded projects involving the use of AESC’s intelligent software agent technology.
In the first two projects intelligent software agents were successfully used to manage the operation of distributed energy resources (DER) in response to dynamic electric rates. The overall objective of this latest intelligent agent based project was to demonstrate that applying agent technology could expand the potential delivery of renewable energy through integration with storage technology and improved management of existing transmission facilities. More specifically, the project objective was to address increased delivery of wind generation resources located in the Tehachapi wind resource area in California.
