US power markets offer a range of environments in which demand response (“DR”) has evolved. Recent US experience is best understood in the context of market fundamentals. While there have been notable successes, the transition to a low-carbon power sector is transforming historical paradigms, including the role of DR.

Traditionally DR was principally a limited-use capacity product, but in future responsive demand’s greatest value will be as an every-day energy product. Success will depend on who can participate and how they are compensated. Deployment of technology, retail energy and network tariff design, and consumer education will be key enablers.

DSMU webinar: Demand Flexibility as a Resource

Energy is changing as we move from centralized generation to distributed clean energy. Energy efficiency also must change with the times. With the advent of AMI and advance M&V, we now have the ability to calculate the time and locational impact of EE and electrification so that it can function like a DER.

This webinar will include an overview of the current grid issues and needs, and how metered EE on a time and locational basis can be deployed to solve these issues. We will then explore some US case studies on how metered EE that is paid on performance is being used as a grid resource, and to encourage market innovation and finance of this infastructure investment.
