16 Jan 2023
Video Length / Slide Count:
In the future customers will have more choices than ever before for what they use and how they use it. Appliances and equipment in the home, process equipment in factories, whether employees work from home, what kind of �fuel� their vehicles use, and how they heat and cool their buildings. At the extreme the electric load on a distribution circuit may triple or more, careful planning, tariffs, and demand response could flatten the load and reduce the costs of new infrastructure. Utilities, regulators and other stakeholders will have to work together to create policy that is socially just, economically reasonable, and can be executed in the required time. This tutorial looks at these challenges and how to understand them.
