Phase 1 Results: Establish the Value of Demand Response

March 2006

Demand response (DR) offers potential economic and reliability benefits to consumers and utilities, by reducing peak electrical demand at times when cost of supply is high or reserve margins are low. This record also contains the appendix to the results of work done on DR Valuation (DRRC RON-01) in Phase 1 to prepare the Phase 2 research proposal. This proposal describes the work performed in response to the Demand Response Research Center's Research Opportunity Notice DRRC RON-02, Incentives and Rate Design for Energy Efficiency and Demand Response. A research team led by Energy and Environmental Economics, Inc. (E3) creates, and validates as a proof of concept, an analytical framework for evaluating incentives and rate design for demand response. phase-1-results-dr-appendix.pdf

Cost of Power Interruptions to Electricity Consumers in the United States

January 2006

The massive electric power blackout in the northeastern U.S. and Canada on August 14-15, 2003 catalyzed discussions about modernizing the U.S. electricity grid. Industry sources suggested that investments of $50 to $100 billion would be needed. This work seeks to better understand an important piece of information that has been missing from these discussions: what do power interruptions and fluctuations in power quality (power-quality events) cost electricity consumers?
