This paper provides guidance regarding when and how smart grid piloting studies should be conducted along with examples from several recent pilots that involved dynamic pricing, a key element of the smart grid. Smart grid piloting studies can help federal and state policymakers understand the impact of the smart grid on customers, utilities and society as a whole and determine whether the benefits of the smart grid will cover its costs.
