This report develops a conceptual framework for designing retail electricity rate structures that provide appropriate incentives for energy efficiency and Demand Response.
This framework is in the form of a set of screens that can objectively answer fundamental questions regarding proposed new demand response (DR) designs, and provide a mechanism to increase understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of DR rate design alternatives.
This document presents the results of work done on DR Rate Design (DRRC RON-02) in Phase I to prepare the Phase 2 research proposal.
