New Frontiers in Residential DR:
Residential Real Time Pricing and Critical Peak Pricing/Rebates
- plus an EPACT Status Report

Friday, December 15, 2020
1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (EST)

As policy makers, utilities and stakeholders across the U.S. increase their activities to explore and move forward on demand response, one of the questions that continues to be raised is what kind of demand response options make sense for residential and other small customers. There is growing interest in what might lie beyond the basic Time-of-Use pricing programs that have been available for many years.

This latest Webinar in the DRCC Webinar Series will explore three new varieties of demand response programs aimed at small customers that have been tried and evaluated. Critical Peak Pricing (CPP) programs have gained increasing interest in the demand response community in recent years. While there has much visibility on the California Statewide Pricing Pilot, other pilots have been underway as well. One of those was at Ameren and Rick Voytas, Manager of Corporate Analysis will present on the results of that effort.

In a new twist on the critical period concept, some parties are testing the idea of using a rebate type of incentive payment for customer modifications during the designated period. Steve George, a principal with Freeman, Sullivan & Company, will present on the pilot of Critical Peak Rebates (CPR) by the City of Anaheim, a municipal utility in California. He will also discuss other explorations of this new option.

Elsewhere in the country, parties are pursuing options that move towards real time pricing (RTP). An example is the Pilot Program that the non-profit Community Energy Cooperative has operated in Illinois. Earlier this year, the Illinois Legislature passed legislation that called for consumers in the state to have a real time pricing option. Anthony Star, Assistant Manager of Community Energy Cooperative, will make a presentation on what the organization learned in the evaluation of its program.

The Webinar will also include a brief status update by Dan Delurey of the Demand Response Coordinating Committee on state and federal activities related to the demand response provisions in Section 1252 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT).
