California’s Demand Response Auction Mechanism
Offset rising energy costs with revenue
earned from using less energy when the grid is stressed.
The Demand Response Auction Mechanism (DRAM) was created in 2014 under the guidance of the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) in an effort to harmonize utility-based reliability demand response with CAISO, the state’s grid operator. The program seeks to allow CAISO to add reliable demand response resources to areas of California where electric reliability may be at risk.
