Using utility demand-side management programs to spur the development of more efficiency appliances. J. IEEE Transaction on Industry Application.
Traditionally electric and gas utilities have promoted the development of more efficient appliances through research institute R
D programs and through utility incentive programs which provide incentives for efficient commercilized products. Recently, a third mechanism have evolved : multiutility incentive programs which target higher levels of efficiency than thew best products presently on the market. One program of this type is now underway for refrigerator / frezers. A second program has just begun for residential clothes washers. Further efforts are likely as evidenced by a recent research project wich dentified major opportunities for more efficient appliances and by the formation of a new organization to develop and promote programs of this type. This paper summarizes each of these efforts..
