Government evaluating DSR potential
The government has confirmed that it is currently undertaking research into the “existing and potential volumes” of demand-side response (DSR) in GB. DECC published a response on Wednesday 1 July to the report, issued earlier this year by the Lords science and technology select committee, on The Resilience of the Electricity System. It said the research was intended to improve the government’s understanding of the characteristics of DSR, how the different types currently participate in the electricity market, and what the future potential of each might be in the capacity market. The research should be issued this summer.
