PAUSE Demand

In collaboration with J-PAL, UHBVNL, and CEEW, we are conducting a randomized controlled trial on plug adoption and use in India to glean the potential of automated energy demand response to improve grid reliability and accommodate increasing supply of variable renewable (e.g., solar) energy on India’s electricity grid. The pilot trial – titled “Plug Adoption and Use for Smarter Energy Demand (PAUSE Demand)” – will take place in Panchkula starting in summer 2022.
