Brochure title:
VOLTTRON: A Technology for Efficient Buildings and Integration of Distributed Energy Resources with the Grid
Description:
VOLTTRON™, developed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, is a distributed control and sensing software platform. Used in concert with special applications known as V-agents, VOLTTRON™ analyzes and converts growing data streams from today’s buildings to actionable information that improves building operations, manages energy consumption and enables true integration of buildings with the electric grid. VOLTTRON™ independently and securely manages a wide range of devices, such as heating, air conditioning and ventilation (HVAC) systems, electric vehicle chargers, distributed energy resources (including renewables and batteries) and entire building loads. Mobile and stationary software V-agents perform information gathering,processing and control actions.
