A new report takes a critical look at the role utility-enabled load management programs and systems have in a deregulating energy market. The report, titled “Load Management 2001-Balancing Customers, Regulators and Energy Demand” is published by The C Three Group.
The report provides case studies of existing and developing programs at investor owned, municipal, rural electric and government owned utilities.
Program types covered include:
- direct load control
- voluntary customer curtailment
- real-time energy information and pricing
- rate and price incentives
- distributed/standby generation monitoring and control
- load management
The report explores emerging programs and technologies, and projects how they are likely to evolve. It also examines older demand side management (DSM) programs and technologies that have years of field experience to reveal the “lessons learned” and determine their future value.
The report profiles existing and emerging vendors, with a critical assessment of their product offerings and approaches to the market. Vendors profiled include: SchlumbergerSema, ABB Energy Interactive, Apogee Interactive, Cannon Technologies, Comverge Technologies, Johnson Controls, Sixth Dimension, and Silicon Energy among others.
