KEMA worked with UKPN to investigate the opportunities that might exist for distribution networks via active customer engagement in demand management. Sample customer trends were analysed in order to understand the extent to which on-site demand can be mitigated during peak periods. Investigated further was the mix of services (essential and otherwise) employed within each of the premises and how mitigation strategies would work with each of the services.

The project has been further informed by an international investigation of demand side options, where the most prominent (and likely to be the most appropriate) options have been considered in the context of the project itself.

Technologies considered were, wireless interruption of air conditioning plant, demand side use of standby generation, incentivised turn down options and building management innovation.
