Our demand response work with Portland General Electric (PGE), conducted in partnership with AutoGrid, was spotlighted in a recent Utility Dive article. In order to help the utility evaluate time of use rates, we helped design, implement and analyze 12 pilot programs focused on residential customers.
In the article, Josh Keeling, who oversees PGE’s smart grid customer analytics, talks about the “high engagement in energy programs … but this is a relatively new concept. The region has a lot of experience marketing and deploying energy efficiency, but demand response—and especially price-based demand response—there's really not a lot of research out here, and we had a lot of learnings in terms of what messages resonated well."
