Transactional Networks

The Transactional Network Project is a multi-lab activity funded by the US Department of Energy's Building Technologies Office. Researchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory designed, prototyped and tested a transactional network (TN) platform to support energy, operational and financial transactions between any networked entities (equipment, organizations, buildings, grid, etc.).

LBNL developed applications to measure the whole-building electric load response to various changes in building operations, particularly energy efficiency improvements and demand response events. LBNL also provided a demand response signaling agent and an agent for cost savings analysis. Both LBNL and PNNL demonstrated actual transactions between packaged rooftop units and the electric grid using the platform and selected agents.
