This class is presented live online.

This two-day interactive, online class explores how to leverage wholesale energy market models to design demand response programs for traditionally regulated, restructured, and emerging electricity markets; a detailed review of the similarities and differences among markets in which demand resources can participate; and, the current and future roles for electricity consumers, aggregators, energy retailers, utilities, and market operators; and the role of DERs and Storage in the market.

Interactive exercises will enable participants to gain hands-on experience with various aspects of the subject matter. The class content expands on a white paper which you can download at www.peakload.org/evolution.
