Today’s market dynamics—rising power plant construction costs, the need for transmission and distribution upgrades, growing penetration of renewables, new environmental regulations, market price volatility—make resource planning with traditional supply-side resources more difficult, expensive, and uncertain than ever. To address these challenges, many utilities, grid operators, and power retailers use demand response (DR), securing a reliable, cost-effective approach to supporting grid reliability and managing risk while delivering customer value.
