Demand-side management program design and implementation
Applying advanced analytics and deep domain expertise to help utilities plan, design, and implement best-in-class DSM programs.
Powerful analytics. Stronger programs.
What’s the best way to use energy efficiency and demand response to manage demand in a location- and time-specific way? Where can you find savings, and how can you get more for less? We leverage deep analytics and implementation expertise to help utilities boost DSM program performance and meet the demands of the future.
Tap additional sources of value
Harsh grid realities. Regulatory constraints. Changing customer preferences. Given these conditions, it’s no surprise utilities are looking to get more from their energy efficiency and demand response programs. With insights from our proprietary analytics platform, Co2Sight, we can help you unlock additional sources of value.
Know how your programs stack up
In the face of a wave of disruptions, utilities need to know how their programs stack up to regulatory pressures. With 50+ years of energy expertise, we can help you assess your DSM programs against industry trends and threats—and find opportunities to develop roadmaps, pilots, and innovative programs that drive value for your utility.
Optimize your portfolio
Factors such as budget caps, energy savings goals, and market transformation can make it difficult to determine the right mix of measures, programs, and incentives to satisfy utility, grid, and customer needs. We use advanced modeling tools and data analytics to help utilities find an optimal portfolio balance.
Create programs that benefit all customers
As the electric grid becomes home to DERs and new energy efficiency technologies, how do utilities ensure all customers can partake? We help you fully understand your customer segments, work with regulatory commissions, and craft incentives and demand-side management programs that reach and benefit all customers.
