1 Restricted & Confidential1 October 17, Energy Climate Workshop November 3, 2008 Washington DC Building a Smart Grid: A National Priority

2 Our mission is to make the Smart Grid a reality by aligning the interests of electric utilities, consumers and the environment. Mission Our vision is to integrate every home and every business into the Smart Grid. Vision Values GridPoint wants to turn distributed resources into the equivalent of central-station generation. How Do We Do It? GridPoint offers electric utilities a practical path to the Smart Grid by providing an extensible technology platform and turnkey implementation Mission, Vision, and Values

8 A Smart Grid is when… … your teenage daughter, who snuck out last night with the PHEV, plugged it in to recharge this morning and pressed override on your smart charger – paying $1.00 per kWh for daytime electricity. …luckily, your rooftop PV is providing most of the energy to recharge, and the extra battery in your garage is working overtime to provide regulation services to the utility at a premium rate…resulting in an overall net zero cost to you....the grid provides value to the local utility …the grid provides value to the consumer …the grid provides value to the local economy …the grid provides value to the environment 8 A grid is smart when…

9 The Grand Challenges… Transfer all traditional capacity reserve requirements to the demand side Increase overall asset utilization by at least 10% Ensure that all critical loads are served 100% of the time Integrate clean energy technologies to reduce CO 2 intensity by at least 30% Proactively mine all utility and consumer efficiency improvements Accommodate a penetration of more than 30% PHEVs 9

17 Power Quality 17 Visibility at the endpoint provides distributed intelligence for monitoring and correcting grid power quality.

18 Energy Efficiency Services … While on vacation you receive a message that your hot water heater has been running full on since last night. Your smart energy manager dispatches a field service technician and discovers a broken water pipe. The utility shuts off your water heater remotely and the technician on site turns off the water, saving you several days of wasted consumption and property damage. 18

19 PHEV Smart Charging 19 GridPoint enables utility- managed smart charging of PHEVs with measurement and verification to reduce stress on the grid during peak periods and enable differentiated pricing – regardless of when the car is plugged in
