Demand Side Analytics


Adriana Ciccone


Ms. Ciccone has extensive expertise with analysis of smart meter data, rate design, potential studies, and impact evaluation for pricing, demand response, and behavioral programs. Some recent examples of her work include:

  • Analysis of revenue-neutral cost-based rate design for over 2,000 time-varying, demand and demand-subscription rates including impacts on customer bills and volatility
  • Analyzing energy savings for behavioral programs for Seattle City Light
  • Implementing the analysis for the California Statewide Non-residential Critical Peak Pricing and the California Baseline Interruptible Program for multiple years
  • Estimating impacts using smart meter and interval data for utility programs at SDG&E and SCE
  • Contributing to the pricing analysis and development of adoption propensity scores for 12 million customers (both residential and non-residential) as part of the California Demand Response Potential Study
  • Implementing baseline accuracy studies for the California ISO and Commonwealth Edison. The CAISO baseline accuracy study included testing of accuracy for over 5,000 baseline rules using smart meter and interval data from approximately 500,000 DR program participants for over 10 programs at PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E
