Webinar Description:

One of the biggest issues attracting regulator, consumer advocate, and utility attention is dynamic pricing. If you want to know more about this important topic, then you need to attend this Webinar!

  • You will hear from two of the leading experts in this area and learn what happened in the U.S.’s largest dynamic pricing pilot.
  • You will also hear about lessons learned in many of the pilots to date (did you know there have been over 70 worldwide?) and how they are being applied to new consumer behavior work underway at DOE.
  • You will hear about the impact of integrating smart metering and data feedback into pilots and programs.

Peter Cappers, a research scientist in the Electricity Markets and Policy Group at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is leading DOE’s technical assistance and evaluation efforts of SGIG grant recipients who have agreed to undertake a dynamic pricing and consumer behavior study with a controlled and randomized experimental design approach. He will describe how the program is structured, how preliminary findings from other studies are driving the design of the work, and when results will be available.

Steve George, Principal Consultant and head of the energy practice at Freeman, Sullivan and Co., will discuss load impacts and marketing effectiveness from PG&E's SmartRate tariff and dynamic pricing program; the largest in the country with over 25,000 households enrolled by the end of the summer of 2009. He will discuss their findings as well as PG&E's tiered rate structure and how customer enrollment varies significantly with variation in the features, timing, and targeting of the market offer.

Presenters: 
Peter Cappers, Research Scientist, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Steve George, Principal Consultant, Freeman, Sullivan and Co.

Moderator: 
Dan Delurey, Executive Director, Demand Response Coordinating Committee
