This report, “Demand Response & Smart Grid—State Legislative and Regulatory Policy Action Review: May 2010 – June 2011,” is an overview of state-level legislative and regulatory policy developments on demand response, smart metering, and smart grid. Prepared by the Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid (ADS), it catalogues efforts undertaken by state regulatory commissions, state agencies, and state legislatures. While the new report does not directly cover any federal activity, it does discuss FERC, DOE, and NIST actions as they relate to and affect state policy efforts. It also covers state actions in response to the two smart grid PURPA Standards established by the Energy Independence & Security Act of 2007 (EISA) and the DOE Smart Grid Grants funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
