Unlocking the potential of residential electricity consumer engagement with Demand Response

Energy Futures Lab launch their latest briefing paper assessing the evidence base for residential consumer engagement with electricity demand response technologies and services.

This event is invite only, please contact Neasan O'Neill if you wish to attend.

Abstract

The potential of Demand Response (DR) technologies and services for residential consumers has drawn increased attention in recent years. This arises within the context of UK Government ambitions - for a secure, affordable, efficient and low carbon energy system - combined with potentially huge opportunities for rapid technological change supporting smart and flexible power.

Energy Futures Lab's latest briefing paper assesses the evidence base for residential consumer engagement with electricity demand response technologies and services and draws lessons for the UK context. It relates these findings to specific topical issues such as: the implications for increasing UK energy consumer engagement generally; supplier testing of engagement measures; and the commercialization of DR-related technologies.

During the preparation for the briefing paper Energy Futures Lab produced a Scoping Note on the topic.
