FERC Demand Response and Advanced Metering Assessment Study

with Michael P. Lee, FERC; David Kathan, FERC; and Richard Philip, Duke Energy

to be presented Thursday, February 9, 2017; 12:30 - 1:00 p.m. Eastern

Thank you for your interest in this DR Dialogue.

You have access to review the recording on this page.

This report is the FERC staff’s eleventh annual report on demand response and advanced metering required by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. It is based on publicly-available information and discussions with market participants and industry experts. Based on the information reviewed, it appears that:

  • Deployment of advanced meters continues to increase throughout the country, and advanced meters are the predominant metering technology installed and operational throughout the United States;
  • In the organized wholesale markets, the contribution of potential peak reduction to meeting peak demand increased to 6.6 percent in 2015 from 6.2 percent in 2014;
  • The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has developed and approved four new metrics for assessing demand response, and intends to continue its efforts to improve demand response data collection to provide information on how demand response contributes to reliability;
  • The North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB) developed and ratified voluntary business standards that facilitate the ability of advanced meters and other utility and third-party grid devices to communicate directly with each other and exchange information; and
  • On January 25, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in FERC v. Electric Power Supply Association, upholding the Commission’s authority under the Federal Power Act to adopt Order No. 7455.

Plan to join PLMA for a dialogue with these industry thought leaders.
