DSR uptake undermined by disruption concerns, survey finds


New research by The Energyst has suggested that businesses are eager to seize on the opportunities offered by demand-side response (DSR) but concerned about the disruption to their operations. Issued on Thursday 8 September, polling by the company showed that nearly nine in 10 (87%) non-DSR providers would be interested in earning revenue from it but that a substantial proportion (37%) feared a disruption to their business or believed that their processes or equipment were not suitable (39%). Nearly three in 10 (28%) said they did not understand the market sufficiently to make a decision, and around a quarter (24%) believed that the return on investment would be insufficient.
