Electricity demand response to changing electricity prices

Hello,

I've been looking at electricity demand response to changing electricity prices within a energy building model like EnergyPlus or DOE2.2. I haven't found this feature embedded in them. I've found three papers on the subject:

1.) This one uses a custom energy model with a cost-minimizing sub-routine that is hard-linked: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/239864909_Load_Control_Usi...

The methodology posited may consider higher electricity prices, and then there is a sub-routine that changes thermostat setting so as to minimize cost.

2.) This one does the same, although the residential model is also custom, and is more involved: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/310453766_Residential_load...

3.) This one also uses a custom model, although not only is the residential model more detailed, but it's posits the maximization of the household's satisfaction, as opposed to minimizing costs:

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/327235071_Households'_response_to_changes_in_electricity_pricing_schemes_Bridging_microeconomic_and_engineering_principles

I've seen all these papers that look at demand response, but using custom models. I'm wondering if EnergyPlus, or the like, is capable of this. 

Thanks.

Harry
