Integrated Demand-Side Management -The Journey Continues

A joint AESP & PLMA webinar


Traditionally, utilities have separated their energy efficiency (EE) and demand response (DR) portfolios into distinct, and isolated, portfolios. As distributed energy resources (DERs) are deployed across the distribution grid and policy mandates shift, utilities and implementers are repurposing their demand-side management (DSM) programs (e.g., energy efficiency, demand response, distributed energy, and energy storage) toward integrated approaches that take advantage of natural synergies using advances in technology and customer engagement. These integrated programs focus on technologies with functionality to decrease, store, or increase both energy usage and demand, thereby combining EE, DR and DER programs.

AESP and PLMA have come together to begin exploring how best to advance integrated demand-side management (IDSM) initiatives through sharing of best practices and lessons learned from the field. Through this webinar, we will provide a practitioner’s perspective, with industry experts discussing the IDSM programs that they offer. Panelists will answer questions pertaining to lessons learned thus far, the technologies these programs are targeting, the policy framework around these programs, and considerations related to measuring integrated the energy, demand, and grid impacts.

Integrated Demand-Side Management - The Next Frontier

A joint AESP & PLMA webinar


In response to rapid changes to grid conditions and policy mandates, utilities and implementers are beginning to embrace far broader applications of energy efficiency and demand response programs. This embrace is necessitating taking a more integrated approach to how these programs are designed and delivered according to the marketplace conditions that we face today.


According to the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, integrated demand-side management (IDSM) is a strategic approach that helps in designing and delivering a portfolio of demand-side management (DSM) programs to customers. While DSM programs have been in place for many years, the IDSM concept is only now beginning to pick up steam and is receiving a significant amount of attention.


AESP and PLMA have come together to begin exploring what IDSM is and how best to implement many of the IDSM concepts. The purpose of this webinar is to explore several IDSM issues with experts in the field with an aim toward helping the industry gain a better understanding of IDSM.
