Ahmad Faruqui and Sanem Sergici to Present at EUCI Conference on Residential Demand Charges

Brattle Principals Ahmad Faruqui and Sanem Sergici will present at EUCI’s Residential Demand Charges conference, taking place October 20-21, 2016 in Chicago, IL.

The conference brings together thought leaders among utilities, industry experts, and solution providers to discuss the issues and resolutions around residential demand charges.

Dr. Faruqui will present the keynote address, “The Future of Rate Design for Residential Customers,” which will discuss the reasons why many utilities are opting to make three-part rates the standard offering for all residential customers. He will also examine how moving to three-part rates can encourage better use of grid capacity, minimize cross-subsidies between customers, and foster adoption of advanced technologies.

Dr. Sergici will present, "Understanding Residential Demand Charges: Present and Future," which will explore the case for residential demand charges when it comes to addressing the infrastructure cost recovery. She will also review the experience with residential demand charges in the U.S. and discuss alternative formulations for demand charges and merits of each option.
