Demand Response Aggregation
A Commission order in Case U-18369 affirmed that Alternative Electric Suppliers (AESs) may offer demand response (DR) programs to their customers through a curtailment service provider (CSP). In Case No. U-18197, the Commission further clarified that an AES can use DR capacity resources from another AES’s customers to meet its forward capacity demonstration obligations under certain circumstances.
The November 21, 2018 Commission order in Case No. U-20348 seeks to examine any outstanding issues associated with demand response aggregation programs for customers who are served by an AES. The Commission has directed the Commission Staff to work with third party demand response aggregators, AESs, customers of AESs, regulated utilities, MISO and other stakeholders to determine issues related to who can bid aggregate DR into the wholesale markets, how to track DR resources, and how should DR be reported in terms of capacity demonstrations purposes.
Staff held a series of Stakeholder meetings to discuss theses issues and filed a Staff Report presenting its findings to the docket in U-20348 on May 30, 2019. On June 7, 2019, the Commission issued an order providing interested parties the opportunity to comment on the report. Deadline for comments is no later than 5:00 PM on June 21, 2019.
