Interoperability of Demand Response Resources Demonstration in NY


Increasing Con Edison's ability to harness demand response resources is a key to limiting system peak demand in one of the largest and most complex electric power systems in the world. This project demonstrates methods to enhance the integration of demand response resources into the distribution network to enhance its reliability and efficiency. This project demonstrates the required software, protocols and communication infrastructure required to enable distributed resources to improve load control, increase system efficiency and reliability, and optimize these resources in the distribution network. Interoperability is being demonstrated by the ability to integrate the operation of a variety of conventional and renewable demand response resources into the existing distribution network. A goal of this project is to develop standards that will excite non-participating distributed resources to consider being engaged in this kind of program.
