The Need and Opportunity to Enable Flexible Demand Response in the U.S.

Utilities have used demand response (DR) for decades to curb power use at times of peak demand. But evolving regulatory, technological and market drivers towards decarbonization are converging so that utilities are taking a fresh look at their demand response programs to provide a new level of grid flexibility.

In this minibrief, Centrica Business Solutions explores the shifting technological and policy factors impacting demand response in the United States.
