Breaking Down Barriers to Residential Demand Response

According to Parks Associates, some 45 percent of all U.S. households will be served by smart meters by the end of 2015, but as few as 10 percent of those will be enabled for two-way communications between a home-area network (HAN) and their utility's back-end systems. Other analysts predict more or less smart meter or HAN penetration, yet the result is the same: The end-to-end, two-way, near-real-time communications needed for system operators to send pricing signals and monitor demand response actions might be a missing link.
