The Brattle Group was retained by AESO to evaluate opportunities to increase the integration of demand response (“DR”) in the Alberta energy-only wholesale electricity market. Our specific tasks included the following:

  • Collect and summarize information about the types and characteristics of a representative sample of DR programs and associated market designs in the US RTO markets
  • Review of current and planned AESO DR programs and DR-related market design elements
  • Gather and evaluate feedback at focus group meetings with AESO market participants
  • Evaluate which of the identified (or potentially new) DR types and DR-related wholesale market designs could be applied in Alberta

This presentation summarizes this effort and presents our recommendations.
