Smart Future: Demand Response, 12 November 2014

Smart Future: Demand Response, an event in the Cleantech Investor Smart Future series, takes place on 12th November in Moorgate, at the offices of Smith & Williamson – 25, Moorgate, London EC2R 6AY. 

The growing integration of intermittent renewable energy generation into the grid, and problems arising from aging infrastructure open up niche for Demand Response (DR) programmes in almost every electricity market.


DR is poised to become a mainstream solution to electric grid instability. 

Navigant estimates that Demand Response load curtailment will skyrocket from a 2013 estimate of 57,764 megawatts (MW) to 140,472 MW by 2020.
