WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 19, 2017) –The Advanced Energy Management Alliance (AEMA) today released a joint report with Mission:data Coalition containing recommendations for policymakers who want to empower their consumers in energy decisions.
"Consumers should be able to fully engage in our evolving energy system and benefit from having choices in how and when they use energy," stated Katherine Hamilton, Executive Director of AEMA. "This reference will provide much-needed and tangible guidance to regulators trying to navigate this intersection of third party innovation, consumers, and utilities."
In addition to recommendations, the guidebook provides a visual snapshot of states that have implemented data sharing policies for consumers.
AEMA and Mission:data are holding a webinar to explain the report and take questions on December 20, 2017.
The Advanced Energy Management Alliance (AEMA) is an association of providers, consumers, and supporters of distributed energy resources, including demand response, united to overcome barriers to nationwide use of flexible demand-side resources for an environmentally preferable and more reliable grid. AEMA advocates policies that empower and compensate customers to manage their energy usage and make the electric grid more efficient, more reliable, more environmentally friendly, and less expensive.
