BPA Demand Response Potential Study - 2018

In 2017, BPA contracted with Cadmus Group LLC to conduct 1) a demand response (DR) potential assessment (megawatts of achievable potential and cost curves for 14 DR products) in BPA's public power service territory, 2) a study of barriers to DR and mitigation strategies, and 3) an elasticity study to understand how varying incentive levels paid to end-use consumers affect DR participation rates. This set of studies was completed in the first quarter of 2018.
