This paper reviews and evaluates various demand response studies, projects and programs from different countries, examining the synergies with renewables integration. It also identifies some of the main barriers to the deployment of such demand response at greater scale. The paper has some information on existing U.S. demand response programs and barriers to participation and optimization, but doesn’t offer specific policy options for the U.S. markets.
