The analysis used a bottom-up approach to quantify economic and achievable peak demand reduction potential individually for each of the 50 states, and to characterize the existing level of DR in each state. Additionally, the work involved a comprehensive survey and analysis of existing literature on DR barriers at the wholesale and retail levels, as well as policy options for addressing these barriers. Results were filed with U.S. Congress in June 2009 in a report titled A National Assessment of Demand Response Potential.
