Demand Side Response (DSR)

DSR financially incentivises energy users to increase or reduce on demand nonessential energy usage at times of peak or low demand.

Why is demand response needed?

The National Grid has to maintain a certain level of energy production capacity above actual demand. DSR is designed to provide the margin, either by increasing or decreasing site energy use.

What are the benefits of demand side response to you?

The primary business arguments for DSR are financial renumeration and sustainability. DSR not only allows businesses to avoid higher energy prices and receive renumeration during times on and off peak demand.
