This report represents a review of policy developments on demand response and other related areas such as smart meters and smart grid. It has been prepared by the Demand Response Coordinating Committee (DRCC) for the National Council on Electricity Policy (NCEP). The report focuses on State and Federal policy developments during the period from 2005 to mid-year 2008. It is an attempt to catalogue information on policy developments at both the federal and state level, both in the legislative and regulatory arenas.
A special focus of the report is on State implementation of the demand response and smart metering provisions—Section 1252—of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT).
