What is Demand Side Response?

Back to articles

Demand Side Response is a programme that enables energy consumers to supply National Grid with flexibility to balance the system and avoid power outages throughout the UK.

DSR allows energy consumers, from commercial and industrial businesses to SMBs and even the end consumer, to respond to periods of high or low demand. By intelligently managing their energy usage and generation, energy users can become flexibility providers (Demand Side Providers) to National Grid.

Demand side Response can take the form of various services like STOR (Short Term Operating Reserve), FFR (Firm Frequency Response), Fast Reserve and Demand Turn Up.
