On Monday, April 6, 2020, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET, NASEO in partnership with the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) and the U.S. Department of Energy hosted a webinar on Valuing Demand Flexibility for Electric Utility Systems.
Demand flexibility in buildings is the capability of distributed energy resources (DERs) to adjust a building's load profile across different timescales. Buildings account for 75 percent of electricity consumption and in some regions up to 80 percent of peak demand. With many adjustable loads, buildings also represent the largest source of demand flexibility.
