Reinventing Demand Response with DERsSEPA

Over the past few decades, the term “demand response” has typically represented older, more traditional forms of load reduction programs. As more renewable and distributed energy resources continue to come online, there is a growing need to balance supply and demand on the grid to support grid stability and reliability. Key players in the industry are exploring the ability of demand response to respond to fluctuations and over-generation along the grid. This webinar will highlight key insights from the 2018 Demand Response Market Snapshot, dive deeper into Arizona Public Services’ reverse demand response efforts, highlight research on DR renewable integration from Navigant, and explore the potential expanding role of DR in the ISO/RTO markets.

ComEd's Peak Time Savings ProgramComEd LM Dialogue Cover

ComEd's Peak Time Savings (PTS) is an opt-in behavioral DR program offered to residential customers with smart meters. PTS, which has been operational for three summers since 2015, is a first-of-its-kind program to be offered in the Midwest, paying participants for voluntarily reducing consumption during summer Peak Time Savings Hours when electricity demand is typically high. PTS enrollment began in the fall of 2014 with approximately 20,000 customers enrolling in the first 90 days, resulting in one of the most successful program launches in ComEd's history. Since then, enrollment has risen to upwards of 230,000 customers, with more than 250,000 expected to participate in the summer of 2018. Not only is the program cost-effective, but market research has also confirmed significant customer satisfaction.
