National Grid calls for Local Authorities to engage in DSR


National Grid invites Local Authorities interested in providing demand-side response to a workshop in Birmingham on 26th September, and outlines why they should attend.

Power Responsive is a programme of work facilitated by National Grid with the ambition of supporting the growth of demand side participation in GB electricity markets. Now in its fourth year, the programme continues to raise awareness, build confidence in flexibility opportunities, and support the evolution of flexibility markets.

The Power Responsive team are delighted to be hosting a workshop to local authorities on Wednesday 26th September 2018 in Birmingham. The workshop focuses on the Demand Side Flexibility proposition, addresses perceived barriers to entry, and explores the various routes to markets, with relevant case studies provided throughout.

We’ll be joined by expert industry speakers throughout the day representing, the System Operator, DNO’s, aggregators, suppliers, and experienced and innovative Local Authorities. Please see our agenda for further details regarding the content to be delivered on the day – download agenda.

We’ll also be hosting a small networking area where you’ll be able to meet with selected aggregators, suppliers, and DNO’s offering demand side services. You’ll be able to liaise with them throughout the day, and they’ll be happy to answer any of your questions concerning demand side flexibility.
