Demand response is one of the 3 legs of the distributed energy resources (DER) stool, that the industry will rest upon by 2040. It is at this point the most neglected of the three legs. Demand response will not just be turning things off, it will be turning things on as well to absorb excess renewable energy in a useful fashion. Many people want a single silver bullet to handle all demand response issues, but Florida Power and Light (FPL) has proven over the last 30 years that a portfolio of programs is required. 

This online tutorial will cover the following topics in each session: 

Session 1 

  • What is Demand Response? 
  • History of Demand Response 
  • What do customers like and dislike? 
  • Different types of Demand Response programs 
Session 2
  • Review of session 1 
  • Defining requirements process 
  • Defining regulatory changes 
  • Security and privacy issues 

Session 3 

  • Review of session 2 
  • Building a business case for Demand Response 
  • Benefits of Demand Response 
  • Costs for doing Demand Response 

Session 4 

  • Review of session 3 
  • Standards for Demand Response 
  • Case studies for Demand Response – innovative and unique programs 
  • Q&A responses from questions in session 1 to 3 
  • Summary 

Each Session: $90/session 

The course will run in four 80 minute sessions via Web-Ex. Registration for each session is required.
