Power Responsive Annual Report 2017

07 Feb 2018

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Power Responsive Annual Report for 2017. The report has been designed for an audience with a good understanding of demand side flexibility (DSF), and serves to celebrate achievements to date, present a view of the current ‘state of play’ for DSF, and look ahead to flexibility opportunities.

We have built upon the 2016 report, in particular on metrics for participation within DSF markets, from which we hope to benchmark against in future years.

We’d like to thank Sustainability First for their assistance in preparing the report, Association for Decentralised Energy for conducting the self reporting survey through their membership, and to all who contributed their time at metrics steering groups.
