The Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid (ADS) has released new case studies that delve into demand-response program design and implementation at Progress Energy Carolinas, Gulf Power, Con Edison and Reliant.

The documents released represent "case study interviews," whereby a discussion with the people behind the programs is captured as a webcast, as well as made available in other ways.

"ADS continually is told by members of the DR and smart grid community that they want to hear about 'lessons learned' from others who are doing similar work to what they are doing," says Dan Delurey, executive director of ADS. "The new ADS Case Study Interview Series is focused on filling that expressed need.”

The case studies span residential and commercial sector programs, time-based pricing and direct control programs, and regulated and unregulated market programs.

The Case Study Interview Series is part of ADS' effort to implement the National Action Plan on Demand Response put forth by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The DOE's Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability is providing support to ADS for the series.

Interested parties can access the case studies in a number of ways: They are available as a webcast, PowerPoint slides used in the interview and written transcripts. All are available at ADS’ website.
