Lead Commissioner Workshop on Increasing Demand Response Capabilities in California

This event has passed. The event information on this page is for historical purposes only and links may no longer work.

The California Energy Commission Lead Commissioner for the Integrated Energy Policy Report (IEPR) will conduct a workshop to gather input on public policies needed to expand the amount of automated demand response resources available to California system operators. Demand response (DR) can help address key challenges facing California by: (1) aiding the response to the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (San Onofre) outage by lowering critical load, (2) providing low-cost peak reduction services and (3) providing fast automated demand response as a "flexible generation- like product" to support renewable integration and contingency events like the sudden loss of a transmission line.

On May 13, 2013, the California Independent Systems Operator (California ISO) hosted a Demand Response and Energy Efficiency Roadmap Workshop to discuss the challenges of incorporating demand response in the California ISO market as well as other activities necessary to increase demand response capabilities in California. This IEPR workshop will follow these activities and address the use of automated demand response in providing flexible generation and integrating large amounts of renewable resources.

Commissioner Andrew McAllister is the Lead Commissioner. Other commissioners may attend and participate in this workshop. Commissioners and staff from the California Public Utilities Commission may also attend and participate.
