Demand Response and the Smart Grid

Investment in electrical infrastructure has struggled to keep up with increased demand.  We have seen demand become so strong that it has triggered large network failures.  Demand response programs provide a simple way for facility managers to get paid for reducing consumption and relieving load on the power grid when it is stressed.  In effect they are returning capacity to the grid and being paid for that asset. This course will look at the issues involved, how Demand Response works, why it is beneficial, and what the Smart Grid is.
