The Seventh Power Plan recommended forming a demand response advisory committee to advise the Council on developing the demand response resources identified as cost-effective in the plan.
The issue paper outlines a proposed approach to forming the committee and its focus on implementation, barriers, and supply curve development. The paper also proposes that the Council convene a system integration forum to enhance our ability to evaluate and analyze enabling technologies and resources similar to demand response that could potentially reduce the cost of integrating existing and new resources with customer demands.
The Council expects to finalize a charter and recruit members for the demand response advisory committee by mid-July 2016. The timeline for convening the system integration forum is early 2018.
