Analysis of customer response to changing energy prices has always been one of the core capabilities of CA Energy Consulting. This work has encompassed analysis of time-of-use rates for residential customers, real-time pricing for large business customers, and critical peak pricing for residential and business customers. In recent years, advances in smart metering and data storage have enabled an increasing number of our clients to hone their focus to measurement of specific hourly load impacts of dynamic pricing and demand response programs, including air conditioner cycling. As a result, we have experience in evaluating programs in which enrollment extends into the tens of thousands of customers. We design samples where appropriate, including quasi-experimental matched control groups, and estimate complex regression models applied to hourly load data to estimate program impacts. We then work with clients to forecast program load impacts that can be used in resource planning.
