What is a demand response provider?

Demand response is a voluntary PJM program that allows end use customers to reduce their electricity usage during periods of higher power prices. In exchange, end-use (retail) customers are compensated through PJM members known as Curtailment Service Provider for decreasing their electricity use when requested by PJM.

What is a curtailment service provider?

Curtailment Service Provider or “CSP” means an independent company, utility, other market participant, or system operator (e.g., Delmarva Power, Delaware Electric Cooperative, PJM, etc.) which enters into a contract with end-use customers in order for the end-user to participate in a voluntary.

What is Open ADR?

OpenADR in a Nutshell. □ Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR) provides a non-proprietary, open standardized DR interface that allows electricity providers to communicate DR signals directly to existing customers using a common language and existing communications such as the Internet.

What is load demand factor?

Demand factor is the ratio of the sum of the maximum demand of a system (or part of a system) to the total connected load on the system (or part of the system) under consideration. Demand factor is always less than one.

What happens if electricity demand exceeds supply?

In the lead up to reaching the point where demand exceeds supply, lots of things have been happening. Alarms are going off, extra generators are being brought on-line and the wholesale price of electricity is skyrocketing in order to send a price signal to major consumers to reduce their consumption.

Why do we need demand response?

Demand response asks large power users to use less during those peak hours—and participants get paid for doing it. We avoid blackouts by using less (reducing demand) instead of building more (increasing supply).

Can a demand response program Save you Money?

Your business can enjoy savings and flexibility through the Automated Demand Response (Auto-DR) program. By installing technologies that automatically reduce energy usage during demand response events, you will not only qualify for technology incentives, you may also start seeing bill savings.

What is demand response and dynamic demand?

Demand response programs are designed to decrease electricity consumption or shift it from on-peak to off-peak periods depending on consumers’ preferences and lifestyles. Actions are generally in response to an economic signal (e.g. energy price, or government and/or utility incentive). Dynamic demand is similar to demand response but is more defined as a semi-passive technology for adjusting load demands on an electrical power grid.

What is Demand Response (DR)?

According to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, demand response (DR) is defined as: “Changes in electric usage by end-use customers from their normal consumption patterns in response to changes in the price of electricity over time, or to incentive payments designed to induce lower electricity use at times of high wholesale market prices or when system reliability is jeopardized.”

What is Demand Response Technology?

Demand response, also called demand management, tips the scale on the electricity users side. Instead of generating more power to keep the balance, demand response technologies reduce consumption on things such as air-conditioners, industrial equipment, electric hot water heaters, lights or dryers.
