Wayne State receives grant to reduce emissions of toxins by power plants into Great Lakes
Date:8/23/2013

In previous work with the fund, Miller's team developed a fully functional alpha version of LEEM and deployed it in two distinct software products: Home Emissions Read-Out (HERO) and Pollutant Emission and Pump Station Optimization (PEPSO).

HERO is a smart phone and web application that turns individual users into active participants in emissions optimization by giving them real-time emissions estimations that allow them to selectively time their own electricity use. PEPSO is a software program designed to optimize pump operations at water utilities by using an existing U.S. Environmental Protection Agency hydraulic model in combination with a team-designed optimization algorithm that incorporates LEEM.

Miller's previous project involved designing algorithms that automatically direct pumps to operate at times when the electric power grid is supplied by the cleanest available sources of energy, and avoid times when it is supplied by more polluting sources. The software was pilot tested using the DWSD water distribution system.

The current project will explore the potential for embedding LEEM technology into "smart" appliances and building systems, integrating it into the electric vehicle market, and working with regulators to incorporate it into energy standards and programs. Miller's team will refine and pilot the LEEM technology, research the market with help from manufacturers and trade organizations, engage customers, and develop a marketing strategy for large-scale adoption of the technology. If successful, the future will see LEEM embedded in a suite of products and services.

"This technology focuses on demand-side management of energy usage and puts choices in the hands of consumers," Miller said. "Even if you don't have an interest in the environment per se, businesses and water utilities can still use LEEM to be savvier about their emissions because of potential future regulations. And for individual consumers, some b
