Demand Response: De-mystifying the technologies that maximize the payback

Discover how utilities are using Demand Response (DER) technologies today to:

  • Utilize customer-controlled power to help manage grid capacity,
  • Integrate renewable power generation sources, such as wind and solar,
  • More closely balance power supply and demand, and
  • Reliably support the emerging electric vehicle market.

In this webinar, ABB smart grid experts will discuss how Demand Response applications enable utilities to improve system reliability, reduce CAPEX spending for new infrastructure and lower emissions.
