Abstract

In recent years, it seems like everything from weather to fuel prices has become more volatile, adding new stresses to electric systems which are already running at or near their peak capacity. What has received less attention is the opportunity and value of investments that both lower demand and help mitigate price volatility in the market. Rachel Freeman looks at approaches to balancing supply-side investments with appropriate demand-side investments, and argues that these investments are an important and necessary factor in any well-functioning electricity system.
