Price-responsive demand explained: Q&A with Henry Yoshimura, ISO Director of Demand Resource Strategy

6/12/18 update: Expanded information on pay-for-performance's impact on demand resources.

On June 1, 2018, ISO New England launched a new price-responsive demand (PRD) structure that completes the full integration of active demand resources (also known as demand response) into the regional wholesale electricity marketplace. Building on demand resources’ long-standing ability to participate in the capacity market, PRD makes ISO New England the first US grid operator to deploy its active demand resources as part of the energy dispatch and reserve-designation process along with generating resources. Henry Yoshimura, the ISO’s Director of Demand Resource Strategy, explains PRD below, as well as the changes and benefits it brings.

Draft load forecast indicates energy usage and peak demand will decline slightly over the next 10 years

ISO New England develops an annual projection of how much electricity the region will use every year for the next 10 years, as well as how high demand will peak during each of those years. The 10-year forecast is a key system planning tool, helping ensure New England has an adequate supply of resources to meet future demand and a transmission system that can do the job of carrying power to residents and businesses.

The draft long-term forecast for 2018 to 2027 projects that energy usage and peak demand will decline slightly in New England over the 10-year period. The primary factors are continuing installation of energy-efficiency measures and behind-the-meter photovoltaic (BTM PV) arrays throughout the region.
