This report outlines and discusses regulatory, policy, market-based, and load-targeting mechanisms, which are all aimed at increasing the use of demand-side resources. The author discusses these mechanisms in the context of different market structures and provides a matrix that guides early decision-making in the policy and regulatory process. High-level discussion of these mechanisms allows a comprehensive overview of the options available to increase use of demand-side resources.
