Load Research and Forecasting
Understanding end-use and premise load characteristics is a critical component of system planning, rate design, and time-differentiated energy savings. With the rapid growth of solar photovoltaic and distributed energy resources, utility investments and conservation efforts are increasingly focused on managing peak loads on the transmission and distribution system. Understanding how loads and DSM load impacts align with peaking conditions is a key part of properly valuing resources and comparing options.Learn More
Customer Segmentation and Targeting

Understanding the differences in technical potential, economic perspectives, and attitudes towards resource conservation across business types, geographic areas, and demographics are keys to effective program delivery. Demand Side Analytics works with clients to look beyond the average customer and target the solution and messaging to customers to maximize marketing dollars and uptake.Learn More
