A new report detailing state and federal policies that have been enacted or are under development in the area of demand response, smart meters and smart grid technologies is now available, according to the Demand Response Coordinating Committee (DRCC). The report was produced by the DRCC for the National Council on Electricity Policy, a coalition of several organizations representing policy-makers, including the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, the National Governors Association and the National Conference of State Legislatures.

The report is a snapshot of State and Federal demand response and smart grid technology policy actions that have taken place between 2005 and Sept. 1, 2008. It represents an attempt to catalogue information on policy developments in both the legislative and regulatory arenas and at both the federal and state levels. The report includes a special focus on state implementation of the demand response and smart metering provisions of the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

"This report will hopefully help state officials to become more aware of what others have done and are doing and possibly find models to consider as they move forward with their efforts," says Dan Delurey, executive director of the DRCC.
