Tool on DR 2.0: A Future of Customer Response Released in Conjunction with 2013 National Town Meeting

(Washington, DC - July 8, 2013) In conjunction with its upcoming National Town Meeting on Demand Response and Smart Grid, the Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid (ADS) released a tool on Demand Response 2.0: A Future of Customer Response. The toolkit identifies and explores the past, present and future of demand response and intends to educate demand response stakeholders and stimulate discussion among the demand response community.

DR 2.0: A Future of Customer Response was developed to fulfill part of the Implementation Proposal for The National Action Plan on Demand Response, a report to Congress jointly issued by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in June 2011. The toolkit discusses the factors causing the shift from traditional demand response to DR 2.0, and outlines the major features of DR 2.0. It concludes by providing resources for DR practitioners and policymakers, including an overview of key issues to monitor and a decision-maker checklist.

Demand Response & Smart Grid - State Legislative and Regulatory Policy Action Review: May 2010 – June 2011

(Washington, DC – July 7, 2011) The Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid (ADS) announced today the release of its new report summarizing state policy activities in the area of demand response and smart grid. The survey report, “Demand Response & Smart Grid - State Legislative and Regulatory Policy Action Review: May 2010 – June 2011,” catalogues efforts undertaken by state regulatory commissions, state legislatures, state agencies, and governors. The report builds off two previous reports similar in scope, published in June 2010 and December 2008, respectively, prepared by the ADS under its previous name, the Demand Response Coordinating Committee (DRCC).

While the new report does not directly cover any federal activity, it does discuss FERC, DOE, and NIST actions as they relate to and affect state policy efforts. It also covers state actions in response to the two smart grid PURPA Standards established by the Energy Independence & Security Act of 2007 (EISA) and the DOE Smart Grid Grants funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
