The growth in the penetration of renewable energy and distributed energy resources has caused the power grid to shift from a centralized system to a more distributed one, leading to increased reliability and resiliency issues. DER flexibility can be used to mitigate these issues by providing grid services. Lighting systems have not been traditionally used this way. However, the evolving communication capabilities of Connected Lighting Systems (CLS) enable them to utilize their flexibility. This research explores how CLS could be configured to respond to OpenADR 2.0b pricing signals in a way that balances occupant and grid needs by creating price vs. power demand curves. A variety of demand curves were explored to evaluate how they facilitate meeting specific objectives. The results show that demand curves can be designed to meet and balance many common building owner/operator needs.
