Demand flexibility in the Long Tail of small buildings

A conversation with John Powers and Deepa Lounsbury of Extensible Energy.

James Dice and John Powers talked about the history of demand response solutions and how that is transitioning to load flexibility and where we are on that spectrum today. As John said, we're seeing more change in the last 24 months than the last 24 years.Then we took a bit of a deep dive into DemandEx, Extensible Energy's product, and how it's especially suited for the small buildings market below 100,000 square feet in area, which is about 98% of the buildings in the US but is mostly untapped from a tech standpoint today.
