STATEMENT FROM ADVANCED ENERGY ECONOMY ON U.S. SUPREME COURT’S DECISION TO TAKE UP FERC DEMAND RESPONSE CASE

Posted by Industry News on May 4, 2015

“Today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to review the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s authority to set rules for demand response in energy markets is to be applauded,” said Malcolm Woolf, Senior Vice President for Policy and Government Affairs for Advanced Energy Economy (AEE), a national business organization. “Demand response is a vital service that allows grid operators to relieve stress on the U.S. electric power system at times of peak demand. Under FERC’s rules, demand response has matured into a major industry that helps keep the lights on during critical events such as the polar vortex and saves consumers billions of dollars annually. We hope and expect that the high court will reverse the Appeals Court ruling and restore FERC’s authority over this important tool for reducing energy bills and enhancing grid reliability for American businesses and consumers alike.”
