Demand Reduction

Grantees may use funds to coordinate with electricity supply companies and utilities to reduce energy demands on their power systems. These demand reduction programs are usually coordinated through a utility or an independent system operator, in cases where there is competition among electricity suppliers. The focus of demand reduction is to reduce the maximum power or peak requirements of all customers over the long-term.

The best practices, project resources, and tools available below can help you develop and implement an effective demand reduction program.
