Grid-Interactive Water Heating (GIWH) is the emerging consensus term describing real-time, two-way communication between the GIWH appliance and the Smart Grid, electric utility, ISO or aggregation entity. When equipped with a GIWH control, a large-capacity (80+ gallons) ETS (Electric Thermal Storage) water heater can respond to near real-time input by enabling fast up and down regulation and frequency control for the purpose of providing ancillary services and renewable storage to the utility or grid-operator.
