In Federal Energy Regulatory Commission v. Electric Power Supply Ass’n, the Supreme Court upheld FERC’s authority over “demand response”—bids of reductions in electricity consumption into wholesale markets—under the Federal Power Act, and held that FERC’s decision to compensate demand response providers at the same rate as electric power generators was neither arbitrary nor capricious. In this Symposium, eight authors explore the Court’s decision and consider its implications for state clean energy policies, grid-edge innovation, and agency deference.
