Demand Side Flexibility: Transforming the Power System by 2030
An exclusive research report on the industry’s experience of Demand Side Flexibility reveals a market in its infancy
Imagine a future where electrical appliances are turned on and off automatically according to the availability and price of power; where electric vehicles change overnight and act as mobile batteries; where major energy consumers see the rewards of providing demand-side response as a significant revenue stream. This future, according to current policy thinking, should be just 13 years away.
Following last year’s market research ‘Energy Flexibility: Transforming the Power System by 2030’ on the significance of energy flexibility and how to achieve it, CGI has teamed up again with Utility Week - the leading media for the water, gas and electricity industries - to investigate the particular issues of Demand Side Flexibility (DSF), as one of the key routes to a more flexible UK power system.
The new research on the industry’s experience of DSF reveals a market in its infancy, analysing its true potential to transforming the power system by 2030 and the barriers to its realisation.
This report is an absolute must-read for everybody in the energy sector.
