Task 13 – Demand Response
The three main objectives of Task 13 work were to:
1) identify and develop the country-specific information needed to establish the potential for demand response;
2) perform the market and institutional assessment needed to set realistic goals for the contribution of DRR to sector objectives, and
3) mobilize technical and analytic resources needed to support the implementation of DRR programs and track their performance.
This Task has developed action-oriented tools that markets and regulators can use to incorporate DR in their daily operating practices. The tools are designed to provide methodologies and research resources to use when evaluating the best business case structure for DR in a market. All of the project tools are organized into the book, Task 13 Project Guidebook, which provides a roadmap for assessing DR integration into the market. In addition to the tools, the book can be used as a teaching guide for a DR professional certification programme.
