Waking the sleeping giant of small scale demand-side response in UK

The challenge of integrating large amounts of intermittent cheap renewable electricity requires a transformation of the energy system. The use of demand-side response (DSR) from distributed sources in homes, shops and offices is a potential source of flexibility. Controlling loads interactively also allows convergence between the electricity, heat and mobility sectors and helps to build […]
