For years, utilities have used simple approaches to demand response – either relying on operators of different customer sites to manually turn off lights, equipment, and systems, or running direct load control programs that give customers little to no choice in how they participate. These models are not scalable beyond certain program and customer segments, and today’s customers expect more sophisticated technology and demand more flexibility in their operations. Now reaching widespread deployment, automated demand response (ADR) is a powerful alternative in both the residential and commercial & industrial (C&I) sectors, offering more reliable and faster responding DR systems.
Featuring senior research analyst Brett Feldman along with Justin McCurnin, global marketing director at Honeywell, and Greg Wikler, director at Navigant, this webinar examines the benefits and costs of ADR technologies, details the current state of the market, and assesses the potential market opportunity as well as the barriers to adoption. The webinar also presents a timeline for the introduction and market penetration rates of contributing technologies.
