This training program provides overview of the significant components of demand side management (DSM) and demand response (DR) programs. As DSM and DR programs are being implemented by utilities, states, and government entities, having a comprehensive and broad understanding of all of the critical facets of such programs is vital for energy professionals involved in directing, managing, administering, and supporting them. By understanding these aspects of DSM and DR programs, professionals can avoid common mistakes and pitfalls when designing, implementing and managing new programs.
This course provides the best value for energy engineering and sustainability professionals engaged in the development, implementation, management, or administration of demand side management and demand response programs or to those seeking career growth in the future into this area.
