End-Use R&D: Technology Development Strategy for an Integrated Market

Abstract:
This article provides a value maximization strategy for end-use R&D planning which meets both supply-side and demand-side R&D objectives. The strategy is compatible with conventional econometric market analysis, power system demand-side management or least-cost planning methods, and operations research approaches common to manufacturing. The strategy permits incorporation of supply and demand uncertainties into the R&D planning process. It also provides a methodology for determining the optimal set of R&D investments. These R&D investments will result in products that increase the value of electrical service, promote the efficient operation of electric power systems, and ensure the productivity of manufacturing operations.
