    Demand Response for Commercial Buildings; Load Curtailment, Dynamic Pricing, and Ancillary Services for Commercial Buildings: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

    4Q 2012 (Pike Research/Navigant)

    “The commercial sector offers a significant growth opportunity for the demand response (DR) market. Commercial buildings account for a substantial amount of electricity consumption…[and energy] usage by these buildings is particularly significant during the peak times of summer and winter when heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems place heavy demands on utility power grids…

    “The majority of commercial customers engaging in DR programs to date have been large businesses and institutions, but utilities, grid operators, and curtailment service providers (CSPs) are now turning their attention to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and institutional customers…[that] can contribute a considerable amount of load curtailment during a peak event.”

    “For decades, utilities and grid operators have primarily relied on manual communications and controls for DR in the commercial sector. However, with increasing automation and open standards-based communication capabilities, utilities, grid operators, and CSPs are able to offer DR, including advanced forms of DR programs such as ancillary services, to a much broader end user market…

    “…Pike Research forecasts that the number of commercial facilities participating in DR programs will rise from fewer than 600,000 in 2012 to more than 1.5 million sites by 2018…
