Summary of the 2006 Automated Demand Response Pilot
MetadataShow full item record
This paper discusses the specific concept for, design of, and results from a pilot program to automate demand response with critical peak pricing. California utilities have been exploring the use of critical peak pricing (CPP) to help reduce peak day summer time electric loads. CPP is a form of price-responsive demand response. This Automated Critical Peak Pricing (Auto-CPP) project from 2006 draws upon three years of previous research and demonstrations from the years of 2003, 2004, and 2005. The purpose of automated demand response (DR) is to improve the responsiveness and participation of electricity customers in DR programs and lower overall costs to achieve DR. Auto-CPP is a form of automated demand response (Auto-DR).
