On July 23 and 24, 2015, DOE's Building Technologies Office held technical meetings graciously hosted by the Virginia Tech Advanced Research Institute on a Software Framework for Transactive Energy: VOLTTRON™. The purpose of this meeting was to provide an overview of the VOLTTRON platform, present new developments and uses, discuss advancement of the Transactional Network concept, and build and expand the user community around this technology.

Meeting agenda items included an overview of the Transactive Energy concept, current and future applications of VOLTTRON, use cases of the technology, and illustrations of VOLTTRON’s potential to address buildings-related services, such as buildings’ energy efficiency, electric vehicle charging, and integration of onsite renewable assets, among others.
