Smart Future: Demand Response, an event in the Cleantech Investor Smart Future briefing series, takes place on the morning of 12th November in Moorgate, at the offices of Smith & Williamson – 25, Moorgate, London EC2R 6AY.
The growing integration of intermittent renewable energy generation into the grid, and problems arising from aging infrastructure open up a niche for Demand Response (DR) programmes in almost every electricity market.
DR is poised to become a mainstream solution to electric grid instability. Navigant estimates that Demand Response load curtailment will skyrocket from a 2013 estimate of 57,764 megawatts (MW) to 140,472 MW by 2020.
DR has the capacity to address many challenges, from energy security, grid instability, rising energy costs, as well population growth and increased demand. This morning event aims to explore:
- What we really mean by Demand Response and why we need it.
- The DR technologies in use
- The opportnities for the grid and other businesses
- Ancillary services to DR
- How the DR market might be restructured
- The opportunities DR provides within the UK’s energy markets
- How DR can best be implemented in the UK
