The Energyst’s 2018 DSR report is now available to download at www.theenergyst.com/dsr.
It contains a survey of public and private sector organisations that provide demand-side response, as well as those that do not – but could do so if appropriately de-risked.
It also includes in depth interviews with businesses about their DSR and battery storage plans, as well as input from consultants Baringa Partners and Cornwall Insight. The ADE also provides a view on the impact of the Medium Combustion Plant Directive and Specified Generator Controls.
Meanwhile UK Power Networks, Western Power Distribution and Piclo outline their plans to procure more local flexibility – and the lessons learned to date. The Greater London Authority also hints at big plans for a London flexibility market.
Sponsor National Grid covers the direction of travel for its balancing services overhaul and how businesses can get involved, while flexibility experts from co-sponsors EDF Energy, Enel X, Eon, Npower, Ørsted, Restore and Scottish Power give their views on the challenges and opportunities presented by demand-side response, and how businesses can navigate a path to lower costs and higher potential earnings.
