National Action Plan on Demand Response

The final National Action Plan on Demand Response was issued by FERC Staff. FERC was required by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 to develop the Plan to 1) identify the requirements for technical assistance to states to allow them to maximize the amount of demand response 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; and 3) develop or identify analytical tools for use by customers, states, utilities, and demand response providers. The Plan recommends the formation of a Coalition comprised of local, state, and federal government entities as well as utilities/load-serving entities, demand response providers, RTOs/ISOs, customers, consumer advocates, interest groups, and existing coalitions. The Coalition would serve as a forum for its stakeholders to coordinate implementation of the Plan. The full text of the National Action Plan on Demand Response is available at this hotlink.
