Power Responsive Annual Report 2018

08 Apr 2019

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Power Responsive Annual Report for 2018.  The report has been designed for an audience with a good understanding of demand side flexibility (DSF) and serves. 

Covering Power Responsive’s objectives of raising awareness, building confidence and supporting the evolution of demand side markets, the report provides an overview of programme activities, industry developments, and detailed market metrics in 2018.

The report builds upon previous version allowing for a greater comparison the 2017, therefore painting an emerging picture of the direction in which demand side participation and prices are headed.   

We’d like to thank Sustainability First for their support in preparing the report, and to all who contributed their time at metrics steering groups.
