Discover the critical role of demand response (DR) in enabling the energy transition and ensuring a reliable grid amidst evolving consumption patterns. Explore the challenges of unsustainable pricing and complex regulations that threaten the future of DR programs and hinder the flexibility provided by distributed energy resources (DERs). This mini-brief, based on insights from Wood Mackenzie, sheds light on the impact of low capacity pricing and cumbersome rules on DR participation, emphasizing the need for reform to unlock the full flexibility of DERs.
- Understand the importance of demand response (DR) as a low-cost, reliable, and clean grid resource in supporting the energy transition and managing variability from renewables.
- Identify the challenges posed by unsustainable pricing and administrative complexities that can jeopardize future participation in DR programs and limit the flexibility provided by distributed energy resources (DERs).
- Gain insights into the impact of low capacity pricing and cumbersome regulations for DR participation and learn about the urgent need for reform to fully harness the flexibility potential of DERs.
