This DOE document provides the baseline report for the ABB SCADA/Energy Management System as delivered to the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory by ABB (software) and Hewlett Packard (hardware).
The work described in this report was cosponsored by Southern California Edison and the California Energy Commission PIER Demand Response Research Center under contract no. W-7405-ENG-48 with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
The document (filed Oct 22, 2004) is the filing of the Southern California Edison (SCE)'s Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Business Case Preliminary Analysis before the Public Utilities Commission of the State of California.
This slide presentation provides insight into the issues related to advanced metering and dynamic rates under the categories of cost and benefits issues such as cost allocation and meter ownership, implementation issues such as adverse bill impacts and rate complexity and regulatory and legal issues dealing with rate policies, rate constraints and revenue requirements.
The purpose of this reference design is initially to establish a common starting point for implementing open information exchange that leverages existing infrastructures in other industries.
This set of slides was presented at the Peak Load Management Alliance (PLMA) Fall Conference, September 2004. The presentation provides information about: Demand Response (DR); Evaluation of Advanced Metering Business Case; and Advanced Load Control Solution.
This document contains the report of the pilot study conducted by Investor Owned Utilities in California to assess how residential and small commercial customers respond to various type of electricity pricing.
This report seeks to quantify how much power interruptions and fluctuations in power quality cost U.S. electricity consumers. It lays out a comprehensive end-use framework for assessing the cost to U.S. electricity consumers of power interruptions and power-quality events.
This slide presentation deals with an overview of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) metering technologies, system costs and benefits, and case studies from U.S. and international projects.
This paper summarizes the measurement and evaluation of the performance of Demand Response (DR) technologies and strategies in five large facilities.

Does Real-Time Pricing Deliver Demand Response? A Case Study of Niagara Mohawk's Large Customer RTP Tariff
This study examines the experience of 130 large (over 2 MW) industrial, commercial and institutional customers at Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation that have faced day-ahead electricity market prices as their default tariff since 1998. It is the first study of large customer response to RTP in the context of retail competition.
This paper discusses how well private firms and public sector institutions' operating conditions, knowledge structures, decision-making practices, and external relationships comport with real time pricing assumptions and how this might impact price response. This paper is based on interviews with 29 large (over 2 MW) industrial, commercial, and institutional customers in the Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation service territory that have faced day-ahead electricity market prices since 1998.
