The 2020 Load Management Rulemaking (Docket #19-OIR-01) will expand on efforts to increase efficiency and demand flexibility in California's electricity grid. The California Energy Commission (CEC) will revise the existing standards to promote a demand flexible electricity market, while ensuring that costs and benefits are equitable. The CEC will consider new tariffs, technologies, and other measures that are consistent with the need for increased demand flexibility to support a renewable and decarbonized electricity grid.
Public input is welcome through the docket and at workshops. The CEC plans to amend the existing load management standards by the end of 2021.
