E3 authors Eric Cutter, C.K. Woo, Fredrich Kahrl and Andy Taylor published the article “Maximizing the Value of Responsive Load” in the August/September issue of the Electricity Journal, arguing that new demands on the grid mean the paradigm for demand response (DR) must shift away from traditional event-based and economic DR. Instead, the focus should be enabling distributed load-based resources to provide dispatchable, flexible, highly responsive and visible control to utility operators, which can provide significant value in integrating renewable and high penetration distributed generation.
