|Cost-effectiveness of demand response
1. Quick review of estimates of long run avoided cost
2. Do we have consensus of LR avoided cost as good basis for DR cost effectiveness?
3. What would a comprehensive estimation method look like?
4. Unresolved questions
a. Traders don't think much DR is cost-effective (see paper)
b. Can DR be dispatched to allow market sales?
5. Can we say anything about the cost effectiveness of pricing mechanisms (e.g. critical peak pricing, TOU, RTP)?
6. What about benefits of DR not captured in above methods?
a. T&D costs
b. Mitigation of market power
c. Reduced volatility of energy prices
d. Environmental effects
