Integrated Demand-side Management: Cost-Effectiveness and Optimization Methodology
What is the need to implement the cost effective integrated demand side management methodology?
To effectively integrate Demand-Side Management program design, a set of internally consistent proposed cost‐effectiveness methodologies need to be developed for integrated projects, and for program efforts that seek to combine all of these demand side resource options within an integrated portfolio.
This informative whitepaper outlines new valuation methods and extends the current research on Integrated Demand-Side Management cost-effectiveness. It addresses key questions like:
What are the barriers in implementing demand-side management?
What are the advantages of the Integrated Demand-Side Management approach to integration and optimization?
Which four elements are required to develop a framework for the integrated cost effectiveness of IDSM?
What are the benefits and challenges of demand-side management?
Read this paper to learn how greater planning and operational efficiency can be captured through robust valuation and optimization of the grid and the full integrated DSM (IDSM) portfolio, which will in turn show greater business case opportunities.
