Soon, DSM coupled with transactive electric distribution services may provide ongoing opportunities for electric consumers to actively participate in electric markets. Demand Side Management: Benefits, Program Mechanics, and Economics provides an overview of how wholesale and retail DSM programs are planned, designed, implemented, and evaluated, and how these programs interact with the wider electric market.

  • Key principles of retail DSM programs
  • How retail DSM programs are designed and implemented
  • Key principles of wholesale Economic Demand Response (EDR) programs
  • How wholesale EDR programs are designed and implemented
  • The role of DSM in electric markets
  • The importance of evaluation, monitoring, and verification to ensure benefits are being delivered
  • The future of DSM and how it may become a key resource in a distributed grid
