Lake Worth, Fla., October 18, 2001 – The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and Peak Load Management Alliance (PLMA) are pleased to announce that the 2001 On-Line Demand Response Benchmarking System is ready to receive data from interested parties. For companies or entities that operate demand response programs, there is no cost to participate.
The purpose of this streamlined system is to allow program managers to compare and contrast their programs with those of other companies. Ideally, this will help provide valuable program effectiveness feedback for those who operate or consider operating demand response programs.
Those companies that submit data by November 1st will be able to preview the results at the upcoming PLMA conference that is being held on November 7th and 8th in Washington, DC (for details, see www.peaklma.com).
The web site, www.eeidatasource.com/eeilreq/index.cfm, provides information on how to register for the on-line system.
Access to this system is obviously restricted to companies or entities that run demand response programs, such as investor-owned utilities, municipal utilities, cooperatives, ISO’s/RTO’s, state/federal utilities, and energy services companies. In order to access the on-line data, an entity must submit data.
