This panel is going to discuss the potential role of demand response in climate change technology options. Less consumption results in direct energy savings and carbon emission. Choosing the right time to consume the right amount electricity may increase system efficiency, reduce emission, improve system reliability, and result in a more economical operation. In addition, recent studies show that demand response programs can help integrate more intermittent renewable resources into the power grid by coping with the generation variations. The panelists are expected to discuss technical requirements and market potentials of different demand response applications and to what extent they can contribute to emission reduction and renewable integration.
