The purpose of this paper is to discuss an in-depth demand side management (DSM) study being performed by General Electric (GE) in conjunction with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and the Glasgow Electric Plant Board (GEPB) of Glasgow, Kentucky. GE has contracted the University of Louisville to perform data analysis for this study. The study is separated into multiple phases each of which is approximately three (3) months in length. Different demand response (DR) strategies are tested during these phases and energy consumption is measured. The study is ongoing, but this paper will be focused on completed phases and their results. These results include the energy performance of ENERGY STAR smart appliances, as well as the effects of two demand response schemes and their implications on residential appliance power demand.
