Demand Side Response (DSR)

Could your energy usage become an additional income stream for your organisation? Avoid high charges and help balance the grid at times of peak consumption.

Demand Side Response (DSR) helps organisations with variable operational demands to become smart consumers of electricity. Your flexible energy consumption could generate revenue for your business helping you avoid the highest charges whilst supporting the grid.

The electricity market has become more and more reliant on customers to balance the grid. In turn this offers the opportunity for businesses to maximise the future value of their flexibility. The Capacity Market is a National Grid scheme that ensures the security of electricity supply over the winter peak.

Consumers and those that generate electricity have the opportunity to submit commercial-size flexibility (at least 250kW) that can be remitted when the National Grid is under stress. For those that respond, there will be a quarterly payment for merely offering this capacity. So even if you have not been asked to reduce consumption, your business will still earn income.
