Demand-Side Resource Integration

As demand-side infrastructure upgrades continually deploy, facilitating consumer engagement and boosting energy awareness, utility-wide integrated planning across traditional silos has become increasingly essential.

  • DSM and DER planning, market assessment, portfolio and program design, and evaluation
  • DSM and DER resource assessment and valuation

Real-World Perspective, Actionable Insights

Cadmus has been a pioneer in DSM planning, market assessment, program design, and evaluation, leading the way in the development of many analytic assessments and evaluation methods now standard in the industry. Today, we’re revolutionizing the way utilities integrate demand-side resources and evolve to a “smarter” grid by combining advanced analytics with proven experience.

Our experts offer a real-world perspective that spans the complex regulatory and competitive issues facing the industry. We inform business and market strategies related to investing in and optimizing integrated DSM and DER and provide analysis of these resources’ impacts on investment in other types of generation, transmission, and distribution infrastructures. Our leading-edge assessments help utility industry stakeholders properly measure risk, cost/benefits, and DSM/DER investment values compared to traditional resources. This translates critical insights into real results that make it easier than ever for utilities to focus on their missions.
