Presentations and speakers:
• "Demand Response Technology Assessment and Delivery: Accelerating Tech Transfer of California’s EPIC Projects" by Mark Martinez, Senior Portfolio Manager, Emerging Markets and Technology Program, Southern California Edison; Julie Hayes, Conservation and Engagement Strategist, Julie Hayes Consulting; Ammi Amarnath, Senior Technical Executive, Energy Utilization Research Area, Electric Power Research Institute
Between 2013 and 2016, Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) led a collaborative effort with leading utilities across the U.S. to develop a research framework to evaluate the readiness of emerging end-use technologies for utility programs known as the Coordinated Early Deployments (CED).
As part of Southern California Edison’s (SCE) participation in the funding and development of emerging technologies through the California Energy Commission’s (CEC) Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) program, the Emerging Markets and Technology (EM&T) group requested that EPRI revise the CED framework to develop a systematic analysis tool known as the Technology Assessment and Delivery (TA&D) framework. TA&D was designed to assist the EM&T program with assessing the potential of new, demand response (DR) focused electric technologies that would ideally improve customer uptake and participation in DR programs. The TA&D process ranks and prioritizes the most transferable technologies, determines the market potential of these technologies and provides a forum for SCE leadership to discuss opportunities for further development as well as cross-functional collaboration efforts that could lead to market implementation.
The EM&T team has successfully adopted the TA&D framework as a standard process for identifying emerging DR technologies with the greatest potential for integration and market adoption.
This presentation will detail the process used to develop the TA&D framework and dive deeply into the purpose of each project, key learnings from the research, identified opportunities for market implementation, and how the TA&D framework is helping SCE accelerate the market readiness of emerging DR technologies. This project was funded by Southern California Edison’s Emerging Markets and Technology Program.
