This quarterly series provides data and analysis for the ISO/RTO markets where distributed energy resources are making headway. Each report assesses key developments and opportunities in each territory, and provides forward-looking insights on market size and potential for demand-side flexibility through demand response (DR) programs.
Key insights from this report include:
- Total demand response across RTO/ISO territories did not materially change in Q3 2017; however, there have been significant shifts in available capacity largely due to the start of new delivery years in MISO and PJM.
- CAISO is in the process of resettling 2016 demand response due to suboptimal performance from its legacy demand response system; the ISO expects to finalize resettlements by the end of October 2017.
- MISO entered delivery year 2017/2018 on June 1, 2017 with an increase in available demand response capacity of more than 440 MW. The increase in available capacity came from behind-the-meter-generation re-entering the market. Nearly 0.5 GW of emergency gensets exited the market in May 2016 when new Environmental Protection Agency regulations went into effect.
