Task XIX (Micro Demand Response and Energy Saving) is a collaborative project under the International Energy Agency’s Implementing Agreement on Demand Side Management (DSM). Historically, the majority of DSM offerings have focused on large consumers. The work will consider the potential for small consumers to participate in Demand Response and Energy Saving projects, focusing on the use of Time of Use pricing, remote/automatic demand switching and energy end use monitoring and feedback.

The principal deliverables will be two reports, covering both the information collated from the UK participants and the International partners. The first of these will define the requirements for the implementation of Micro demand Response and Energy Saving schemes, along with options for effective delivery. The second will build on the first to assess the business case for delivering such schemes.

The work commenced in January 2009 and tt is anticipated that it will require 15 months to complete.

The project assesses the potential for and likely business case/s to support the delivery of Micro Demand Response (DR) and Energy Saving projects to Residential and SME customers. The three techniques for demand side management that will be focused on are Time Of Use pricing, remote/automatic demand switching and End Use Monitoring and Feedback (EUMF).

Whilst the primary interest is in relation to developments within the UK market, the project is coordinated under the International Energy Agency’s Implementing Agreement on Demand Side Management. This provides an opportunity to look at the possibilities in a broader context, and to understand developments within the other participating countries.
