"Timothy Brennan, a senior fellow at the Resources for the Future think tank, said sophisticated minute-by-minute electricity controls — on refrigerators, air conditioners, space and water heating, and EV chargers — could help match fluctuations in solar and wind energy supply.

Ideally, the changes may be too brief for consumers to notice, or users might be compensated by savings in energy use, he said in a research paper published this month. One key open question is whether utility companies should be permitted to offer that service or if other private companies should fill the role, he added."
