A recent study by The Brattle group identified nearly 200 GW of cost-effective load flexibility potential in the U.S. by 2030. This load flexibility potential, which equates to 20% of estimated U.S. peak load in 2030, would more than triple the existing demand response (DR) capability and would be worth more than $15 billion annually in avoided system costs.  To view and download the free report, go to https://www.brattle.com/news-and-knowledge/publications/the-national-potential-for-load-flexibility-value-and-market-potential-through-2030

In this webcast, the authors of the study will discuss key findings and their implications for the demand response market, including predictions such as:

  • Utility load flexibility programs will become smarter before they get bigger, by first modernizing existing demand response programs to tap into their underutilized potential.
  • Residential load flexibility additions will exceed those of larger commercial and industrial customers, despite having only a 30% share of the current demand response market.
  • New regulatory incentives will be a primary driver of growth in load flexibility, due to renewed industry-wide interest in regulatory models that encourage utilities to pursue demand-side initiatives rather than capital investment in infrastructure.


Who Should Attend. Practitioners from energy utilities, solution providers and trade allies looking to gain and share dynamic load management expertise, including demand response and distributed energy resources.

Ah, I'm always looking to add new podcasts for the energy nerd in me to my rotation-- glad to hear you're on iTunes so it's easy to do so! This topic in particular has me excited. 

Utility load flexibility programs will become smarter before they get bigger

This has me really looking forward to it
