In spite of significant energy and demand reduction potential, CVR has been hindered by a lack of supportive regulatory structures and business models, easy access to emerging technology information, and planning tools.

This webinar by IEEE Smart Grid expert, Kelly Warner will present results from a soon-to-be released collaborative effort between the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Applied Energy Group (AEG) to conduct an assessment of Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR) activities across the USA, identify barriers, and recommend actions to overcome the barriers. The assessment resulted in the review of 41 contemporary CVR projects, the collection of 583 references (including 40 regulatory filings), and discussions with industry experts from investor owned utilities, electric cooperatives, public utility districts, manufacturers, and standards groups.
