The U.S. Department of Energys Renewable and Distributed Systems Integration (RDSI) Program focuses on integrating renewable energy, distributed generation, energy storage, thermally activated technologies and demand response into the electric distribution and transmission system. This integration is aimed toward managing peak loads, offering new value-added services such as differentiated power quality to meet individual user needs and enhancing asset use. The program goal is to demonstrate a 20% reduction in peak load demand by 2015, through increased use of both utility- and customer-owned assets.
