With rising electricity demand and extreme weather events, America’s electric grid is facing unprecedented challenges. Large states such as California and Texas have increasingly leaned into demand response programs for emergency action to prevent outages during extreme weather. However, demand response has potential beyond emergency response. By pairing smart thermostats with demand response programs, utility-tech partnerships have directly benefited customers and utilities by maximizing existing infrastructure capabilities, making the grid more reliable and resilient, and helping customers save money. In this conversation, the audience will learn about use cases for utility-tech partnerships, the opportunity for growth, and their impact on environmental justice and equity.
