The project will recruit 200 domestic premises to trial a number of DDSR scenarios. The benefits of the scheme will be a report updating the assumptions in the WS3 Transform Model associated with domestic demand response.

- To understand the scale and structure of payments required to ensure behavioral change.
- To quantify the potential changes in peak load through domestic demand response
- To identify the scope for long term enduring demand response services
- To evaluate which domestic devices offer the greatest potential load reduction / deferment.
- To ascertain customer appetite in relation to deferment of load

- Recruitment and installation of devices at 200 properties

- Quantification of the amount of peak load reduction possible through such techniques.

- Update WS3 Transform Model parameters

- Deliver the project to time, cost and quality

- Deliver a technology solutions that works out of the box

- To achieve high levels of customer satisfaction
