 Traditionally, utilities have separated their energy efficiency (EE) and demand response (DR) portfolios into distinct, and isolated, portfolios. As distributed energy resources (DERs) are deployed across the distribution grid and policy mandates shift, utilities and implementers are repurposing their demand-side management (DSM) programs (e.g., energy efficiency, demand response, distributed energy, and energy storage) toward integrated approaches that take advantage of natural synergies using advances in technology and customer engagement. These integrated programs focus on technologies with functionality to decrease, store, or increase both energy usage and demand, thereby combining EE, DR and DER programs.

AESP and PLMA have come together to begin exploring how best to advance integrated demand-side management (IDSM) initiatives through sharing of best practices and lessons learned from the field. Through this webinar, we will provide a practitioner’s perspective, with industry experts discussing the IDSM programs that they offer. Panelists will answer questions pertaining to lessons learned thus far, the technologies these programs are targeting, the policy framework around these programs, and considerations related to measuring integrated the energy, demand, and grid impacts.
