Demand Response

A potential but largely unrealized benefit from the development of competitive electricity markets would be the ability of consumers to react to real-time prices that reflected the actual cost of meeting load, so that they can reduce their consumption when the cost of power exceeds its value to the consumer. This potential has been largely unrealized for two primary reasons: the wholesale price of power in ISOs employing a capacity market system to maintain resource sufficiency generally only reflects a portion of the cost of power; and few power consumers are able, or perhaps willing, to adjust their consumption in response to short-term changes in real-time prices at the levels permitted in most energy markets.
