Demand Response

Demand response is designed to decrease electricity demand or shift it from on-peak to off-peak periods depending on customers’ preferences and lifestyles.

Demand response programs are implemented with large and small commercial and industrial as well as residential customers, often through the use of dedicated control systems to shed loads in response to a request by the network. Under these programs demand reductions are carried out according to a pre-planned load prioritisation scheme during the critical time frames.

Demand response potential will be investigated as a part of the potential DSM program investigation process.
