Demand Response & Smart Grid
The Electricity Markets and Policy Group conducts public interest research on the smart grid and concepts, technologies and operating practices it enables from a market, policy, cost, benefit, and performance perspective. Through funding from the US Department of Energy, we provide technical assistance and research to state and federal policymakers, international organizations, the electric utility industry, academics, and others. Our work in these core areas focuses on analysis of smart grid policies and programs as well as customer response to time-based retail rate designs.

The majority of our work falls into the following three areas:
