Demand Response Advanced Controls Framework and Assessment of Enabling Technology Costs

You are here

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL), with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, researched a variety of demand response (DR) opportunities and the various bulk power system services they can provide. The research presents a framework for the costs to automate DR and provides descriptions of the various elements that drive enablement costs.

The outputs of this research are a technical report, a database (of data underlying the research), a user manual for the database, and a presentation. The report introduces the various DR enabling technologies and end-uses, identifies the various services that each can provide to the grid, and provides the cost assessment for each enabling technology. Additionally, LBL held a webinar on the research, and a webinar recording is available. All of these are available from the LBL Demand Response Advanced Controls Research Web Page and from the links above and below.
