The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is required to develop the National Action Plan on Demand Response (National Action Plan) as outlined in section 529 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), entitled “Electricity Sector Demand Response.”  This National Action Plan is designed to meet three objectives:

  1. Identify “requirements for technical assistance to States to allow them to maximize the amount of demand response resources that can be developed and deployed.”
  2. Design and identify “requirements for implementation of a national communications program that includes broad-based customer education and support.”
  3. Develop or identify “analytical tools, information, model regulatory provisions, model contracts, and other support materials for use by customers, states, utilities, and demand response providers.”
