The Mid-Atlantic Distributed Resources Initiative (MADRI) seeks to identify and remedy retail barriers to the deployment of distributed generation, demand response and energy efficiency in the Mid-Atlantic region. MADRI was established in 2004 by the public utility commissions of Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, along with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and PJM Interconnection.

The guiding principle for MADRI is a belief that distributed resources should compete with generation and transmission to ensure grid reliability and a fully functioning wholesale electric market. However, institutional barriers and lack of market incentives appear to be slowing deployment of cost-effective distributed resources in the Mid-Atlantic.
