One of the most important aspects for industrial, commercial and institutional energy users is the way they decide about energy consumption and energy contracting.

How do they go for well informed decisions?
What'a at stake?
What are their options?

My suggestion is focusing in this group, to be created, on decision making processes. 

In my professional experience as an independent energy consultant, I recognize that decision making process is one of the most important factors associated with what companies and instituions do. 

Your comments about this proposal is more than welcome!

HI Rafael, I support this proposal. DER is becoming increasingly important because for its various roles that one way or another affect the grid, in particular, reinforcing the grid through supply augmentaion or demand response. The contracting and associated decision processes as undertaken by ICRs is an important subject worth developing futher.
