Ahmad Faruqui to Present Keynote Address at EUCI Conference on Residential Demand Charges

Brattle Principal Ahmad Faruqui will present at the Energy Utility Consultants, Inc. (EUCI) Conference on Residential Demand Charges, taking place July 24-25, 2017 in Charleston, SC.

The event gathers thought leaders among utilities, industry experts, and solution providers to discuss the rate design challenges of accommodating distributed energy, issues that utilities can expect to encounter with residential demand charges, and the potential unintended consequences of demand charges.

Dr. Faruqui’s keynote address, “The Future of Rate Design for Residential Customers,” will discuss the reasons why many utilities are opting to make three-part rates the standard offering for all residential customers. In addition, he will examine how moving to three-part rates can encourage better use of grid capacity, minimize cross-subsidies between customers, and foster adoption of advanced technologies.
