There is an increasing interest in demand-side management (DSM) by utilities and regulators throughout the USA. With this interest, there is an increasing need for DSM evaluation. Regulators expect utility engineers to use least cost planning and integrated resource planning approaches to adjust their generation capacity plans to reflect DSM. Increasingly, utilities are considering DSM to affect their T&D capacity plans. However, major utility DSM programs are less than a decade old. This leaves many utility engineers uneasy. How do they know that DSM will be there when they really need it? To verify and improve the contribution of DSM programs, utility analysts have developed a set of methodologies and procedures for evaluating DSM. The purpose of this panel session was to review these state of the art evaluations and the lessons learned from them so far. The authors explore the differences inherent in evaluating DSM at the T&D level versus the generation level, and review DSM's persistence and reliability in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors
