Demand Response

Demand response (DR) is a set of time-dependent activities that reduce or shift electricity use to improve electric grid reliability, manage electricity costs, and provide systems that encourage load shifting or shedding during times when the electric grid is near its capacity or electric prices are high. Demand Response Research Center's objective is to develop, prioritize, conduct, and disseminate research that develops broad knowledge to facilitate demand response.
