Energy Storage and Demand Response
This project will identify practical solutions, incentives and pathways to realise the potential resource which flexible electricity load could offer into the GB electricity market.

The project will evaluate and understand potential GB electricity demand-side response as a resource across all sectors (including how micro-gen fits in), develop a clearer understanding of the economic value and potential of this resource to different market actors and to different customers over the next 10-15 years and systematically evaluate the key consumer, commercial, regulatory and policy issues and interactions.

Co-ordinated through a Smart Demand Forum, the project will develop a substantive knowledge-base and provide thought-leadership and visibility for GB electricity demand–side issues, by bringing together three key strands: practical demand-side and load-management experiences, including from Low Carbon Network Fund projects; a top-down technical and economic overview; and, expert analysis of the key consumer, commercial, regulatory and policy issues.

There will be a structured work programme, delivered through a series of workshops, published materials and papers.
