Utility Procurement of Demand-Side Services in Quebec


On behalf of Regroupement national des conseils régionaux de l’environnement du Québec, Synapse prepared a report on the importance of using competitive procurement processes to implement demand response programs in Quebec. The report describes the challenges associated with utilities hiring unregulated affiliates to provide services that can be provided by competitive companies. It also provides examples of states and provinces that use competitive procurement practices to hire vendors to design and implement energy efficiency and demand response programs.
