What are Demand Side Response Schemes?
There are fundamental changes to the way we manage and balance energy demands. The goal is to give our power infrastructure more ‘flexibility’; particularly as more renewable energy sources come on line. However, the inflexible nature of renewable energy sources coupled with the challenges of controlling grid stability in real-time presents a major challenge for grid operators.
Businesses are being asked to play a much more active role, using intelligent energy platform technologies to manage how much power they use, and when they use it. This broad suite of solutions is called Demand Side Response (DSR). DSR schemes offer generous, long-term additional income to energy-intensive companies that are willing to participate.
